    If you want to get rid of that shadow (caused by the lens hiding the light from the flash), hold the camera further away, and zoom the lens in more to frame your shot the same way.

    The best tips I can give you are the following:

    Use a tripod
    proper lighting is a must
    learn the settings on your camera and understand what they do
    play with these settings and see what differences they make

    And do what you can to not have to use the flash.

    heheh what can I say, I like growing plants, woodworking, the beach, spending time with my daughter (the butterflies are from a morning trip to the local aquarium in Chatt, TN) and fiance, books, computers, the woods.... I've got a lot of interests, and not nearly enough time for them all. which is why I like taking pictures of things, to remember the times I do have :)

    I'd like to join.
    I just bought a low mileage Canon 40d EOS that is in mint shape.
    It's my first ever semi-pro camera and I think it will be fun to learn about photography.

    I also have a Canon Powershot SX230 HS that is pretty cool.

    My next camera.

    Yeah, right. It's only $35k.

    But, but, but, mooooommmmm . . . it shoots 100fps in 5k video.

    Sexy tear-down shots

    Serious, or unattainable wish list item?

    And that teardown guy's an idiot. I was like ah that's the VRM circuitry. Read below: "I don't know what this thing is..."

    Let me put it this way. It costs more than my 2008 Civic Si did new :laugh: :toast:

    Ya which is why I was pretty sure I wasn't supposed to take you seriously. If you had a 2011 rig with dual 590's then that might be a different story :p
