    the same reason why, if your friends ask you to be the main photographer for their wedding. it also opens up many other future issues.

    Like what everyone's saying, I believe carrying a flash around is essential in almost any indoor events!

    me too. what i said meant "when it happens, it happens"

    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.

    At least, you were never again "arrow" to shoot for your company event.

    Just take note that what seems bright to you may not be so to your camera.

    Yea, i'll always bring a flash when i go shoot indoors. You'll be surprised how "dark" an HDB void deck can be to your camera. Anyway a flash is not that heavy also la..

    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.

    So is the lightsphere or commercial diffuser really necessary, can tupperware do the same, you decide.

    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.

    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.

    funny enough, i prefer the GFLS.

    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
