Yes, wide angle lenses rock; yes, you can use them in the rain; yes, you can tilt; yes, you look for storytelling details, and yes, exposure is critical – shoot RAW. And yes, use the Rule of Thirds.
And yes, most of these images would have been much easier if I had had my speedlight on the camera.
And finally, yes, even no-flash grab shots can be worth taking. Document your life!
