I am afraid, very afraid of flash photography; but without a good flash I was missing lots of indoor shots and even some fun outdoor shots. After a lot of research (about 10 min. on-line) and a request from a friend to take some pictures at their 20 year anniversary celebration, I decided on a Nikon SB 400. It fits the bill, it is small, lightweight and not too terribly expensive. I have been playing with it a lot lately. But to be totally honest with you, I NEEDED this flash to take THIS picture. You don’t know how many times I have taken a picture of Colt like this and it was always, blech. Not this time, this time I got just what I wanted.
