To disable the flash from firing, simply turn the mode dial clockwise one more setting to the Flash Off mode. It is the same as Auto, but the flash will not fire.

The best mode to use, versus flash off or Creative Auto would be Program mode. The flash will not pop up unless you physically activate it. That advantage, along with the ability to set Continuous Shooting mode, would make this ideal for your shooting needs.
