    Thanks for this link. I'm not the OP, but I'm following this thread with some interest as I'm just starting to get into MF.

    I thought that's what heavy tripods were for.

    While I realize you wrote, "easier to use," and not, "better to use," this is still going to ignite a flash vs. natural light religious war.

    Naturalist looking flash photographs are actually very difficult to achieve, most look like studio portraits - key light, fill in or reflector, a little bounced or back light. Daylight by comparison has a vast range of colour temperatures, levels of diffusion and shadow depth to be exploited, so long as the photographer isn't on the clock in the set up.
    It's not a question of evangelising one light source, more one of exploration. Studio flash can lead to highly formulaic shots that look like everyone else's idea of studio photography. A lot of contemporary fashion and editorial work is on location and in available light.
