Flash or no flash

Time for everyone's 2 cents. I usually use a lot of flash in my climbing photography. Am I over doing it? What do people like. Group A uses lots of off camera flash, group B uses none. What do people like more.

Group A




Group B

I like group a a bit more.

I like B more, it seems more natural. But I dont know anything about photography...

I am a fan of none... but it depends on how its working....

I find them all interesting, flash adds a cool creative element but I personally lean towards the natural style. On the other hand, if I had flashes I'd probably use them.

I like both.
Sometimes it's better to use and sometimes not. Just depend in what you want to say. If the picture talks by itself, dosen't matter what you use.

Sam, I checked all the Hueco footage yesterday. And it's awesome. Good job!
Take care

FLASH!!

i prefer natural light, using off camera flash when necessary. there are obviously lots of opportunities to exploit flash in Hueco.

I think natural light when possible... In this case, it seems like the photos in group B have more depth to them.

i guess it wasn't an even test. Group B was shot at like f1.8 because of the lack of light while group A was shot at f8.

Thanks for everyone for the feedback.
