Ashley, a great friend, coworker, and photographer has been giving me both camera advice and teaching me little tips and tricks here and there. I don't think she'd mind me sharing this tip, so here goes:
To get a quirky and natural red glow just place your hand or finger over the flash on your camera while taking photos. I tried it out and here's what I came up with on my first try.
It's a great technique to use at night when a flash may be a little *too* harsh.
Clever, hey? Thanks Ashley!!
