4th shot - flash pointing straight up

3rd shot - flash angled even more towards ceiling

2nd shot - flash angled slightly more towards the ceiling

1st shot - flash w/diffuser, straight on

I'm playing with the flash again. First shot is just plain yucky, and over exposed because the flash was pointed directly at the bowl of apples. Finally with the 4th shot, I think I got what I wanted. I was shooting in Manual and discovered that I could set the shutter speed where I want and the flash will compensate.

Scott Kelby is soooo right - the on board camera flashes are junk. LOL I bought his Digital Photography Book boxed set and am really enjoying reading them and hopefully some of what I'm reading will stick in my brain.
