SB-600 good enough... you want faster recycling times, use Lithium batteries......
another method is tilt vertical straight up with a bounce card to throw light forward..but ceiling height must watch out..
This is an electronic post which requires no signature.
When in doubt,
safest indoor flash setting :
ISO 400, f/5.6, 1/60s : DIRECT FLASH.
The subject sure kanna one ....but background kanna or not, no garrentee.
Good luck and enjoy

I used a DIY bounce card for my brother's wedding and it works fine (for my standard) and I am not pro so standard not that high. I think both the SB-600 and SB-800 works fine with the bounce card. Hope this helps... Just go grab the flash before hand and do some indoor shoot to get used to the behaviour and gain some confidence.... And don't forget to post your photo for us to enjoy... happy shooting...
A Picture paints a thousand word.....
I have some queries too, hope someone can enlighten me too.
1) For under shades and outdoor shots where fill flash is required, would it be better to use a bounce card at 60 degree or to use a omnibounce?
2) In situations where there's insufficient lights, but there's no walls, should I be using omnibounce or bounce card to diffuse the light?
Same for #2.
Remember it all depends on the guide number of your flash, distance to subject and how much you need to light up in relation to your ISO choice, aperture choice and also shutter speed needed.
You're right. There's nothing wrong. But if there's a better alternative why not?
Results are just... well. Just not as good.
Would that work better? Or would dialing in -ve compensation be a better option.
It's like a bit too small to create that softbox effect.
