i have an dinner party coming up and would like to know how to take nice pics with flash. i own a fz5. most ppl tell me that the internal flash is not strong enough to take decent pics under low lighting, and also too harsh.
is it possible to take nice pics with internal flash? i am thinking of using a plastic card to diffuse the flash. what aperture should i use and what shutter speed should i be keep to so that pics will not be blur? what about white balance setting? auto?
or an external flash is a must to take decent pics? i dont really want to buy a slave flash...
