    In indoors esp, sometimes when I tend to use the flash (for digital camera), it's kinda localized. The picture is very bright at certain parts only. This problem didn't occur when I was using the normal camera.

    How do I go about getting an even lighting for the overall picture? Thanks. :)

    What kind of camera are you using? And is this a flash on built into the camera or seperate from the camera?

    From what you say, it seems likely that your lens is wider than your flash capability from the sound of it. Or that you are too close to your subject or your subject is too reflective. Perhaps try getting further away and zooming, or adjusting your shooting style slightly?

    If you can, post some pics so we can get an idea of what you are describing.

    Ken: I'm using Panasonic DMC-FX7. The flash is built in.

    Rob: I never thought of that. I'll try to make some changes.

    Cdeep: Here's 1 pic. But like Rob said, maybe I snapped it too close.

    might want to try an omni bounce
    it spreads the flash out more
