I wish I knew more about photography... why things work and why light does what it does... Both these photos were taken outdoors, at the same time of day (and of the same flower) but for the second angle it looked like it was coming out too dark. A shadow of flower against sky, which is neat but not the shot I wanted really, so I turned on the flash. I got my flower, but... for some reason the sky became a piece of painted backdrop, a piece of paper instead of itself. Why did it do that? Does anyone know?
