Hello all, I'm new to "proper" photography, (besides going through a Holga phase and a series of cheap point and shoots) and bought an E-M10 as my first really nice digital camera. I've been wrapping my head around the capabilities of the camera, but when it comes to using the flash I always am unimpressed with my shots. I try not to use a flash, I prefer natural lighting, but I'm finding that my apartment just has too little ambient light to get good shots of my family. They seem too blown out, too 'obviously a flash was used'. I'm curious if anyone has any suggestions for settings. i've been reading up on 2nd curtain, which seems cool, but is it good for fast shutter speeds? is there any advantage to using that? Also, I don't understand when you would ever want to use 1st-curtain. I'm also wondering if I should just pony up and get an external flash, but I really would rather not have another piece to carry around.
