Hi all... just got my first external flash (I used to
have a Pentax ZX-5.... pop up flash... upgraded to a
F100 and now just got an SB-28)...

So was at a wedding, and when trying to take pictures
with the flash, everything turned out crappy... and I
think I know why... just wanted input... I read in a book that
in order to help avoid red eye, you should use bounce
flash... in such a big room (church)... me about 30ft
away, should I just have had the flash directly pointed
at what I was shooting at?

I also had the little white card flap thing sticking out
which seems to mean that the diffuser gets used... could
that have been bad as well???

I think I may not have waited enough time in between shots to
allow the flash to recharge... I don't know... guess I need
to read some more... just thought some people could help...


Thanks!
