Hello, One of my friends asked me if I would take her senior pictures because she liked all my other pictures.. Without thinking I said yes. I came to realize, I haven't really taken that many people pictures, the only ones being candid/sports.. I don't have a flash, only the pop-up, and I'll probably be using the 50mm 1.8 or 85mm 1.8., I know some of the basics, like shoot away from the sun, and during the evening.
How helpful is the flash really?
Are there any tips y'all recommend, or a decent flash with budget in mind I should get (I planned on getting one prior to this, have been looking at the 430EX and some sigma ones..)
btw: I'll be shooting outside, not indoors.
