EXPOSURE IS KEY

I believe the most important thing to understand about using flash is exposure. Beginners often make the mistake of setting up their flash, turning it on and then trying to get the power figured out. The first step should always be to get your camera settings by exposing for your environment. Once you do that, add your flash and take its power up or down depending on what it takes to get your subject exposed properly. Doing this will also make it look more natural because your goal is generally not to light everything in the shot. The goal is to light your subject.
