A little something to consider: Often when you use flash, objects closer to the camera will get too much light on them. In the case of this picture, the lady's hands were too light. I selected them with the Magic Wand (they could have been selected with Quick Mask, or some other method) and then darkened them with a highlight adjustment in Photoshop CS3. Levels, Curves, or Brightness adjustments would have worked as well. My objectove for flash results is to look as little like a flash image as possible.
