To Flash or Not To Flash

This is the zoom flash I’ve had for 20 years. My fiance at the time (now my husband) gave it to me for my 21st birthday when I got my Canon T50 35mm camera from my parents. It fits on my Canon XTi, but there seems to be a glitch. I’ve only tried it once briefly, so I need to give it another shot to be sure. There may be a compatibility issue.

Since you can angle the flash up and in either direction, you can control where the lighting hits. When a flash is optimal because you aren’t using a tripod for maximum stability, but you don’t want that washed-out look or red eyes, this flash is wonderful. It gives a much more natural light to the photo. I just hope it actually does work with this camera! I’m going to hook ‘er up right now and see what I can come up with. If it works out, I’ll share some comparison shots.

I don't believe humans truly have a purpose. Our goal is to survive until we expire. Period. Joy is pleasurable and worrying is not. Balance in life is crucial; but if the scales must tip, may they tip on the side of joy. I’m just another human trying to survive. I blog because I can and because I enjoy it, not because it serves any purpose.
