Last night, as she tucked our son into bed, my lovely and talented wife came into the office in search of the camera. Our conversation went something like this:
Wife: "Where's the camera? I need to take a picture of your son. How do you get this thing off the tripod?"
Me: "Wait a second. You're going to need some light."
Wife: "This is supposed to just be a quick snapshot."
Me: "Do you want a blurry mess or do you want to be able to see what's in the photo?" (Set flash to TTL BL, +1 EV, on-camera, oriented to bounce off ceiling and adjacent wall. Camera set to ISO 200, P mode, +0.7 EV)
Me: "Oops, you're going to need some film."
Me: "There you go."
Me: "Hey, presto!"
