Is flash dan­ger­ous for new­borns?

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

A cou­ple of years ago sev­eral sites ran a du­bi­ous story with the head­line, ‘Three­month-old baby left blind in one eye af­ter fam­ily friend for­got to turn off the cam­era flash while tak­ing a photo close up’. Un­der­stand­ably, this left many par­ents con­cerned about the use of flash in baby pho­tog­ra­phy. How­ever, op­tometrists and health ex­perts have com­pletely de­bunked the story. You can rest as­sured, flash will have no harm­ful ef­fect on a baby – for one, it’s barely stronger than day­light. Also, if this was true then we’d be hear­ing more cases of this hap­pen­ing ev­ery day, to say the least!
