    Flash for subjects with Sunsets?

    Here's one I've struggled with for years, probably because I never really researched it. How to you get those beautiful images of a subject where the sun is directly in your face? Well, not the bright sun so to speak, but sunsets or sunrises. I've tried using the built-in flash from various...
