A difficult situation will work out. You just have to tell yourself that. This was one of those difficult situations where my flash wasn’t doing what I needed it to do. The kitchen was super small and there were to many shadows no matter how much bouncing was used with that flash. I opted to not use it in the kitchen. Insanity.
Tell a story. What is the end result? Where is the person in your images going on their bike? What are they cooking? What are they painting? Start to finish is always fun and will be more interesting than just that final product.
