If you must use pop up fash, set the flash settings on "rear" and up your ISO to about 800. This will let more ambient light in as well as making the flash not quite so strong. If the pictures are still looking too flashed, dial the power of the flash down.



A cheap solution over a pop up flash is the lightscoop. I use mine all the time when I'm just doing snaps at home and don't want to set up offcamera flash.

Whats the difference between the lightscope and the diffuser?

You should shoot in RAW and auto WB and just fix it in post in Photoshop.

WB maybe? Also, are you shooting in RAW? It will make editing everything so much easier! You can adjust your pictures a lot more with RAW.

Okay, I am shooting in RAW+fine and I changed the WB to take a picture of the stars outside so I saw incandescent and tried it out

Thank you :) I'm still not charging yet I'm just trying to get it all figured out. That gives me a lot to think about. You always give great advice thanks!
