I used to think that I "needed" a flash unit on my camera. I have moved so far away from that position that I don't even have a flash unit on my camera and didn't even realize it for some considerable time after I had purchased it. There is nothing about this picture of a pottery kiln that needs a fill in flash. All of the necessary light comes from the south facing window. With a flash unit, you would lose most, maybe all of the texture of the bricks and the color of the pottery containers. Perhaps when we think we need something that appears to be an obvious choice, we need to rethink what it is we are trying to accomplish.
