Aside from portraits, what do you use a flash gun for?
"flash gun"? Kind of an old term Do you mean an external speedlight? like the Nikon sb600 or the Canon 430ex? If so then there are many uses for the light.
outdoors in bright sunlight shadows are harsh, a flash can be used to fill the shadows, not just on portraits but on any object.
Macro photography almost always needs a light
Any kind if set up studio style photos here you are shooting a small object, I'll set up lights on it
Actually, I generally use studio strobes for portraits. I use a flash gun for fill flash in the field for almost any subject that doesn't have uber-reflective eyes and is in range. I also use it as an auxiliary background light for high-key portraits if I need it.
haha, thanks for the info. i like calling it a flash gun since its kinda generalized.
When you said "flash gun," my first thought was this: The Image Fulgurator
That thing is weird.
Id totally use it to put giant genitalia on famous monuments.
