The flash is often used when there is little light, for example in the evening or at dark venues. But there are situations where flash does miracles to your photo, even in bright situations.
The following pictures clearly show the difference between photos taken with and without flash.
1. To illuminate subjects in backlight
2. To fill in shadows
3. To create motion blur
4. To create a darker background
5. To prevent motion blur
As you can see at the images above, the light of a flash affects the whole image, not just the main subject. While the subject is illuminated by the flash, the background can be manipulated by the camera settings.
