Flash and Slash

Sometimes life can be blown away by a flash. It flattens faces and distorts colors and seems to suck the life out of people. Flash is almost never flattering... unless your a goth, then it really brings out your white makeup and ensures your blood-red lipstick and black fingernails pop!

I have been really enjoying using a technique where you use your flash but leave your aperture speed for a long exposure. it's great to allow you get your subject in focus but without creating a lifeless flat image. It normally adds an otherworldly effect. I really like to make sure the camera get lots of movement to make the effect blatant.
