    why you consider pointing side way is wrong too?

    I do that also, using the wall as a bounce, so to create more directional lighting.

    Why do you think that the flash cannot be used sideways? Are you saying that no shot will ever warrant that sort of lighting?

    What is said here shall not be taken seriously. This is not supposed to be any serious, professional, technical or optical discussion.

    When I tried to shoot some crabs, I pointed my flash sideways, to make sure I dun miss the crab. :bsmile:

    Note: in my earlier post, "crap" was a typo error, my apologies.

    Since SG is going to venture into space, we should propose to SG gov to build a death star ..... err I mean gigantic flash in outer space

    Whenever any SG photographer need additional light, we send a signal and a laser beam .....err powerful flash will shoot down at the subject
