    You may want to get into yogi, it will help you with flexibility that way you can just shoot standing up and bent over backwards.

    I'm not a pro photographer. I just play one on TV.

    I think everyone should follow and do. Please do not assume we know what's in your camera bag, I left my magic mind reading hat at the repair shop because it does not work past my computer screen.

    What you can do is cut one of the small petals from the hood. Put the gap at the top when you use the flash and rotate it to the bottom in the sun.
    I usually buy a cheap Chinese hood for about $5 and fit it to the bayonet on the lens after some work in the lathe ..keep the original for re sale

    Sorry but the rotate frame suggested is a total nightmare to use ..you must hold the handle while you rotate the camera within the frame and then you need one hand on the camera grip and another on the zoom ..your third hand holds the frame ...add that its too heavy and the flash is too high and heavy.Its so high it will give you shadows under the nose and chin ..forget it . What you need is this unit ..I have three ...always keeps the flash over the lens ...an SB 400 is ideal.

    Consider going with an off-camera or hot shoe flash. The camera's flash on most Nikons are pretty much useless for general photography. They work a lot better as a trigger for other slaved units. They are pretty anemic when it comes to power and as you have found out, have problems with certain lenses. Get a larger flash that fits in the hot shoe or look for a flash that is attached to the camera either via a handle or flash bracket.
