Want to get back to photography
Like what everyone's saying, I believe carrying a flash around is essential in almost any indoor events!
Pretty sure there will one or two photography enthuists in any company willing to do this for credits.Originally Posted by kei1309
i still remember the first time i got arrowed to do a company event. i just started using a DSLR. my pictures were horrid because i didn't take what my boss intended (no instructions given)... basically i was shooting the models at the event and my boss saw all my pictures afterwards and he was like -.-
and my colleague who knew what to do took the event with her own DSLR got all the pictures the company needed
it was really learning point for me
For this case, quite unlikely.Originally Posted by Octarine

Regarding the usage of flash.
Any of you guys have experience with flash modifiers/diffusers such as the Gary Fong "Whale Tail", Light sphere etc.
Are they worth purchasing for event photography outdoors or in locations where bouncing the flash is not possible?
Use flash not because light not enough.

Gary Fong Lightsphere vs. Tupperware | Improve Photography
So is the lightsphere or commercial diffuser really necessary, can tupperware do the same, you decide.

I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.
My lousy shots
I have the Gary fong lightsphere bought way back and a lambency one (copy). Both of these are just sitting in my cabinate collecting dust. I was usually uaing my demb mostly. And now that is is getting so much wear and tear, I got a new bounce replacement called flashbender from rogue. I find the flashbender to be the best so far, allowing me to shape the bounce any way I need to fit the situation.Originally Posted by rhino123
Diffusers like gary fong LS or WT are good if you work indoors with a lot of walls and ceiling to bounce off of. But they do tend to waste more flash power than needed. Outdoors they are next to useless.

these days i use the FB when it's pretty hot and there's no wind... to fan myself
and yes. only the pictures of pretty girls turn out good. somehow the guys always look bad in the picture
