When the announcer says "no flash photography" at an entertainment venue they have reasons for saying it and for insisting the guests comply. Many shows involve an element of risk for the performers, such as the divers in the Oasis Of Dreams show, the aerial acts, and the ice skaters. A flash can momentarily blind them or disrupt their concentration and cause them to fall or worse.
