I own a D80 and take mostly portraits but people are starting to inquire about hiring me so I think I may come across a situation where I might need a flash. but I realllllly hate the harsh light of a flash. i think it makes a photo look horrible but maybe it is just because I am not experienced with using flash properly.

heres what I want to know. Do I really need a flash? what could I do to use a flash that would actually make a decent photo. any comments or suggestions?
