Now, the immediate advantage is going to be if you're in a dark location and you just really want a picture of whatever is going on there, you're going to need to use that flash and it's going to boost the overall exposure and at least you're going to be able to get an image. Now, the disadvantage to it is more a, a, of a style choice because the, the light that comes from the camera is actually a very harsh light and going to just, just going to push out and it's going to throw the shadows back and it's not going to look very flattering necessarily. But, again, the advantage of it is at least you will be able to take a visible picture. And that is the main advantages and disadvantages of using a camera's flash. I'm Dan Reinecke, take your best shot.
