Up to this day I had been using my flashgun in the automatic setting. I don’t really like reading manuals and I didn’t want to change the settings that would make it impossible for me to use it or force me to read the manual. Anyway on this evening I was feeling particularly adventurous (plus I was having problems photographing these flowers, the light coming out of the flash was too bright!) and decided to have a play around with the manual settings. I found out it wasn’t that difficult and it’s actually better as now I can decide the quantity light coming from the flash.
