How to bounce Ext flash?
I just finished taking a lot of photo at my Cousin's Wedding.
I took a few portrait shot with External Flash mounted with Stofen Omni-Bounce. But I had hard time removing those shadow.
Any idea on the proper ways of bouncing the external flash(with Omni-Bounce on) with minmum shadow?

You will get shadow no matter what if you are not bouncing off the ceiling. A really big bouncecard will help soften but not eliminate shadows.

Try using higher ISO such that the flash settings can be reduced instead.

Something the size of 1/2 of an A4. But it would be cumbersome. Seriously what conditions are you shooting under to get those shadows? How were u using the omnibounce?

You Can use one of these.....
An example of a LARGE bounce card would look something like this.......
this is still under development....but the results...are..........AWESOME........
The main aim of a larger area is to create less define lighter shadow as the light is dispersed in a determined (controlled) direction....
Useful when the ceiling is too HIGH!!!!.....

I guess it should if you use ttl (through the lens).... well.... since it's ttl... just hope that the ceiling is there... well, I guess the power of the flash should come into the equation if the ceiling is high...
