The Magic of the External Flash

I admit, before I started this whole blogging thing I had no idea how to use any camera that wasn’t a point and shoot. The land of DSLR was a little difficult for me. I didn’t have the time or money to learn about or invest in essentials. I think my pictures have improved over the last year. But I’ve been missing one essential accessory… the external flash. I’ll need to take a few practice runs to get the hang of the exposure, but I can just imagine how much my pictures will improve with this. Just take a glimpse at this picture…

I obviously used too strong of a flash here, but you get the idea. I cant wait to play around with this even more. I wish I had gotten one sooner (or borrowed my brother’s, lol!).

Anyone else have picture taking tips that I should have learned months ago?? 🙂
