    I just got a flash but the only way I can get it to not blow out the picture is to throw up the fstop all the way.

    I hate full depth of field.

    School me on the correct technique of using flash?

    DOF is relative to your distance to the subject so f16 at 4ft wont give you the depth of f16 @ 10ft say, move closer to the subject n close down that aperture.

    are you trying to do balanced fill flashing in good light? If so you may need to turn on FP in your camera's flash sync settings.
