    Flash photography?

    I was watching BBC news today when the presenter read 'the following report contains flash photography', and it turned out that some G20 leaders were taken photos by journalists. I was wondering why the presenter did emphasize this particular sentence.

    It also seems when a thrill film begins the background reads ‘this film may contain strong language and flash photography'.

    Any particular reasons for doing so?

    This is to alert those viewers who have photo-sensitive epilepsy. Flashing lights could trigger a seizure.
