In this 7 minute video, Mark Wallace shows 3 different positions for using an on camera flash. Even if you use an on camera flash, you may be able to pick up a new idea or two from this short video. For those that don't use an on camera flash at all, you will see how to do things that couldn't be done as easily in the same environment trying to use the natural (available) light in the room. Don't let on camera flash scare you.
In case you are not familiar with the term TTL that Mark uses in the video, it simply means that the camera and flash are working together automatically to determine the proper flash output based on the camera settings. In manual mode, you'd have to manually make the needed adjustments.
Mark also mentions exposure compensation on the flash which means that when in TTL mode it changes what the flash thinks it should be putting out based on the results that it puts out on its on. So if the flash is too bright and you change the exposure compensation by lowering it by 1 stop, it will put out less light on the future images.
