Wildlife Q&A - Do You Use Flash For Your Bird Photography?

Steve Martin asks:

I have a question regarding flash photography in the field? Dark wooded environments or just “kissing” a subject with a light source to lift awkward shadows? Ive used external speedlights for macro & sometimes hand held woodland in dark wooded areas, however any help & advice would be great.
Nature photography has become a very passionate hobby of mine and whenever I get a chance I love to get outside and enjoy being outdoors. I am also the co-owner of KGM Expressions, a wedding and portrait photography business, with my wife Kim. This is how we make our living and I love that we get to do that together.
