Default Such a difference with flash

This is a pic I took really quick last night of my daughter with my new Nissan flash everyone suggested I get. It's quite a difference, I had no idea flash could make such a difference in a pic. Just wanted to share.

Nissin

Just to get you started:
See here for a bunch of good techniques for using flash on-camera. Some day you might also venture into off-camera flash but for now Neil has some great on-camera techniques that can result in good-looking photos. The thing you generally want to try to avoid is tilting the flash so it is pointing straightforward and flashing directly at the subject from the camera. Though there is a time and place for that in most cases bouncing the flash will result in better-looking pics.

EDIT: forgot the link! http://neilvn.com/tangents/flash-pho...hy-techniques/
Neil van Niekerk is a master at making on-camera flash not look like on-camera flash.
