How can I feel more confident using flash? I avoid it as much as I can!

I've been asked to take some pictures at a party in a nightclub. Should I use your simple settings and just up the ISO? I imagine most people will be moving around on the dance floor in nightmare lighting! Please help!

Don't be put off if some of these questions seem a little "techy" at first...

One thing I just can't understand - how can everything be in focus (in landscape photography) at say F16 - F22 but yet recently when I was shooting a landscape in low light someone told me to go to way lower F/nr than F16 as "there's no need to be up there, you need more light now" - I thought the lower the F/nr the less detail in the photo would be in focus so why would I want that for a landscape shot?
I’m an art student in Norway currently working on a photography project, which requires me to submit a portrait photo of my grandmother to an exhibition. How do you shoot older people?
You don't have to go further than your doorstep to find soft, flattering light - it works every time!
Ask those little things about photography that have been niggling you!! I don’t know the meaning of life but I do know a lot about taking pictures so ask away!
