    Default bounce box?

    why do the bounce box (the white white box, not sure of the name) produce a very warm cast on my image compare to the fash without the box?

    Awww...come on man, be nice to the guy can? Give him a break! He already put this in the newbie section for crying out loud.

    htthach, that white box acts as a diffuser. when the light hits the 'cloudy' (white) surface, it 'spreads' out the light (diffusion) therefore the light scatters onto your subject.

    This bounce box is call Diffusion Dome (if you are using Nikon flash, and it come with it)

    The light will be more cool when you shoot with your flash head aim direct, but when you shoot it with bounce, certain amount of light will bounce on some surfaces (walls or ceilings) before it falls on the subject, hence will produce slight warm cast.

    It shouldn't be too warm, you need to check your camera setting.

    Hope this helps.
