Thread: Bounce Built-In Flash

    Default Bounce Built-In Flash

    Hi

    I've been taking a number of indoor flash photos and I'm getting sick of direct and bright flashes. Since I'm using a Olympus C-3020Z, I'm stuck with the internal flash.

    Is there any DIY trick I can use to make the flash light bounce upwards so that my subject's lighting stay soft?

    Thanks.

    bouncing might be hard given the relatively small camera size but you could use tissue paper to diffuse the light. you could also tro a smaller aperture (e.g. F5.6) which might lower the effect of flash a bit for close-up subjects.

    As in using tissue paper to "cover" over the flash?
