I've heard 'them' say (they not being pro's or anything) not to use flash if you can help it. and the truth is, once I disabled my flash on my p&s I started getting better shots (flash always seemed to wash out faces). so the first thing I did when I got my canon xsi was disable the flash. now I'm rethinking... if canon put a flash on the camera, there must be a time and place for it. so when and how do you use your flash?
