I believe many of us would have thought about what diffusers we want to go into... cost is an issue, and size of the item... even battery life for the matter... cause most diffuser will "decrease" the power of the flash. So i thought of sharing some photos which i took of my little bear to show the effects of using different flash combination.
I did a search in the forms search engine and didn't find something like this... so in case i bobo... moderators please remove this thread... my bad
Setting of the Camera and Flash are all in MANUAL.
Gear used: E510, 15-54mm, FL-50, Foreverfriends bear.
Setting: 54mm, F3.5, shutter 1/60. GN 14. (14 was the best lighting for the setting. else its either too bright or too dark on the "baseline picture").
Location: In my computer room. (white celling)
Here i'll start with the BASELINE picture So we can compare it against the rest.
This is the usual bounce "Turn up the flash and bounce it off the celling".
Next, the flash is turned to the side (so u see the short end of the head instead)
Basically there's not much difference between the 2.
