You never know. When you do it was a waste; when you don't you wish you had. The main thing was I didn't realize that relatively close up opportunities existed, yet it was so dark (even shooting vegetation). I had been thinking more along the lines of a Better Beamer and long shots. I use the remote trigger on the camera and have two flashes that I'm sure my wife could have reasonably aimed but so far I haven't tried this. At home, the flashes would be on tripod heads aiming at a set-up.Jack
Thanks for the tip! I am just packing to leave on Friday and so I'll take my flash, which I have never done before.
