  2. Very cool atmosphere. I like the second photo better than the first.

    You know, they sell little diffusers for the flash on your camera. If you like using that flash, you might want to try it. It will make the light softer (more like the second photo) to begin with.

  3. Thanks for the tip Rachel! I rarely use my flash. But I should tuck one of those diffuser into my camera bag for times like this.
