And while I liked the way this turned out, my favorite is the first one I took, just before the one with people.

All the images were taken with the Sony a6000 mirrorless camera and 16-50mm lens.

The flash can also be used to highlight subjects in the foreground that would normally be silhouetted. A small piece of white cloth can also be used to cut down on the amount of illumination the flash would normally provide.
