deliberately use a small aperture to underexpose the shot and rely on the cameras little flash to expose the close up subject as u want.. AV mode..

another example taken at the same time and place..

both taken in poor daylight conditions..

The barbed wire image is really compelling - pretty artsy stuff, my friend. I've only used the onboard flash on my DS2 for fill in flash in backlit scenes. Now I'm thinking I've been selling its value short.
