Flash scares me. My eyes glaze over when I hear the word “speed lite.” I do everything I can to avoid it. The only way I like to shoot flash is on my lomo or holga. Point and shoot.
I use video light instead when I need light. I can “see” it and it doesn’t scare me so.

That is inspiring. I’m going to have to play with flash and/or video light for backlighting. Looks so good.
Some flash tips: Meter for the ambient, add in your flash and bounce if you can.
The trick for the holga is:
Set Holga to B (bulb)
Focus: 3 people
Set on Cloudy setting
Nikon SB80 Flash on Manual: angle of coverage 35 degrees - set distance at 5-7 feet.
