I've been reading (and reading and reading!) books and websites about flash. I know most people say that taking the flash off camera is the best light, I get that (still DO NOT understand flash one bit though).
At every wedding I go to the photographer usually just has a speedlight with a diffuser on it (like a stofen). When I see the finished photographs they usually look very good.
So my question is...how do they do it with the flash on camera?
I'm curious about this because I got recruted to take pictures at my job's family night. Just candid shots of families together. I am worried because it will be inside areas where it will be darker and I know I'll need fill light with my on camera speedlight.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
