    That is good! In addition to the even flash, it makes the person who is being photographed smile! LOL. But i wouldnt dare to wear that. Imagine in a wedding and a wedding photographer does that. OMG

    For sure it will get strangers smiling, and makes them less guarded. Useful when raining also!

    that lady really knows how to bring out the smiles!

    but i think guys doing it may get the "pervert" look. ... especially if approach too near little gals.

    you don't have to go until that far,

    just paste this at your bounce card will do, but it has to be white color.

    ... is a guy in reality - Juergen is a male name. The ladies you see there are not the photographer himself but a) his Japanese teacher and b) a photographer colleague.

    the response from people does affect one's mood and passion. some culture or society is colder with people looking at you with ridicule and despise, whereas others may look at you with amusement and curiosity.

    this should come in very useful during raining day.

    think of it, maybe candid will pose for you with some really funny pose after seeing such a cute helmet.

    I believe this wun provoke candid, only amuse candid
    Life is like Photography, to improve, you have to keep shooting!

    So True! Ya i'd do it. Anything for a good photo. But if they start seeing you as a wierdo and avoid you... or give the despised look then it'll backfire

    maybe not in the day.... at night where its more subtle and less people will think you're totally nuts. =X

    Umbrella should be configured to be able to auto close/open? Possible improvement?
    Looking for Canon 100mm F2 USM :)

    so for your expertise, would an on-camera flash and bounce card gives as good a result as for flash bounced from the umbrella from the top?
