    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    He could surely make a living as Santa.
    Frank, you have to get an off camera flash.

    Frank, it looks like you better break out a shovel with that camera of yours. 2-feet of snow predicted? Oh baby ... that will make the shack a little shorter, eh?

    I don't know about 2 feet we are close to the water so it might start out as rain. We will see. The camera is always ready. LOL

    Pete, I might scratch the lens and add the flash and a new camera bag. Is the F42 good enough? I am trying to keep the cost down.


    Thanks

    I had the F42. It was a good performer. Get a diffuser for it, I think it makes a big difference. This is the one that I had. http://www.adorama.com/SFOMMN7.html?...=sto-fen+f42am
    I bought another one for my Speedlite.

    And that's what you'll get, Frank. The trick is to avoid head on flash.
    Use the swivel head to bounce the flash off a wall or ceiling to diffuse the light and allow some facial modelling.
    Or get the F42 off the camera and bounce it or use a diffuser as fdexclpl suggested. The pop up flash will trigger the F42.

    Have fun!

    The diffuser won't help much indoors to be honest because it's best to just bounce it.
