Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
When I hold my camera in the vertical position, I get a shadow (very dark area that obliterates the picture) for the upper right corner to the bottom left corner. It only happens when the flash is on.
Shadows, especially circular shadows, are pretty common with the pop-up flash. What you are seeing is actually the shadow cast by the end of the lens. This happens especially on wider angle shots.
The solution is to find a way to get the lens out of the way of the flash. You can get an external flash, like a 430ex or 580ex, which elevates the flash far above the lens. That is an expensive option so first you might try making a diffuser for your pop up flash, which softens the source of light and helps eliminate some shadows:
