    Default What Flash Diffuser to use for Outdoor Portrait Photography?

    What kind of flash diffuser do you guys normally use when shooting portraits at outdoor? Is it Omibounce, Flip It!, Lightsphere, Bounce Card or other Diffusers?

    Flip it works pretty much like your regular bounce card, just that u are paying more for a more 'pro' look and some hinges so that u can move the card up and down. Would set u back around 50 bucks or more though.
    If you are just trying out....go to this site abetterbouncecard.com
    Cost only a few bucks to make, and very flexible too, just that u will get stares from people when u shoot outdoors.

    But he's listed as an advertiser ...

    Anyways - original question ...

    It ALL depends on the shooting and light conditions. There's no 'one-product-fits-all-situations outdoors' answer.

    I have third party whale tail, lambency and omnibouce, but for outdoor, still prefer bounce card, cheap DIY but works great.

    An example of a bounce card that works decently well is the ABBC (A better bounce card). You can obtain more info from this site, http://abetterbouncecard.com/. Simple and easy to make, best of all, its cheap
