Ok, I admit it, the "natural light elitist" bloggers sometimes drive me crazy. You know the ones. With their perfectly staged images who never use the flash and wait weeks to show off a project because "it's just been so gray and the light is so terrible" etc. etc. Sorry, if you're reading this and you're one of those folks. Trust me, I still love your blog, I'm probably just jealous that you apparently have daylight hours available for photography.
ANYWAY this was not really meant to be a rant on photography, more of a comment that maybe those folks are on to something.
Granted, neither is a masterpiece of photography but the non-flash image (left) is a lot more true-to-life colorwise and has more depth.
I actually kind of like how the flash (right) blacks out the distracting background but the left image is much more realistic as to the state of my coffee table.
Yeah, yeah so maybe they are on to something. If my overhead lights count as natural light :) Maybe next I'll figure out how to stage photos so you can't see the mess in my kitchen or toys in my living room.
