After reading many a review
and looking up many articles.
I decided to buy the 580 flash
however, this is my first flash, and im having alot more truble learning it then learning how to use my camera!
i read the manual
but it was all jargon to me.
I have yet to sit back down and read it again

HOWEVER, i was wondering if anyone could give me some tips
here are some photos form when i used it on auto setting:
' . substr('//Elmakias.smugmug.com/photos/123520213-M.jpg', strrpos('//Elmakias.smugmug.com/photos/123520213-M.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
' . substr('//Elmakias.smugmug.com/photos/123520142-M.jpg', strrpos('//Elmakias.smugmug.com/photos/123520142-M.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

for both of these i bouch the flash off the cieling and used the white slide(forget the correct term) to bounce it forward.

i was coursious how to get the effect where the subject is the only one lit up, and not so much the background
any ideas?

thanks dpc

i have found learning lighting with flashes to be the hardest to understand through my development.
i have found strobist to be a huge help.
