    Usually, I would use the built in bounce card on the SB900 for portrait shots. If I am using a wide angle lens to take group photos, then I use a diffuser.

    The built-in catchlights panel can only be used in landscape orientation which i think it's pretty useless for portraits.

    I actually have a photoshop format of the DIY bounce card.Can just adjust the size,print out and paste it on a harder board and you have your own DIY bounce card.

    Anyone need the format can PM me you email address.

    Which do you normally use and why?
    When I was using my old canon bounce flash - think it was EZ430 (420? something like that), I used OminBounce simply because it was 1) affordable 2) ez to carry everywhere. So far, pleased with the results. Then again, I'm not pro, just played for fun.

    But I also added a card to the back of my flash as "fill in".

    hey,

    nice reflector.. what material are you using for it? what are the dimensions?

    Actually I've been making a few reflectors myself but I find it a bit impractical? It looks totally weird when out in the public and more often than not people around me go "wtf?!" when they see my reflectors. I spoke to a professional photographer recently who covered my brother's wedding and he said thats why he's using a stofen, looks better, though it cuts some power.

    Anyone of you have similar experience?

    there's really no 1 solution to this but for me in general

    if the room is small enough with white walls around, I'd flag the flash with black foam & bounce the flash to the walls in the direction I want the light to light my subject from, this gives me a "directed" natural soft light effect. Bouncing to ceiling is often found to give a flat lighting to the subject, they are soft but flat (but at times this is an option too, remember, there's not 1 solution for all)

    if the room is too big our night outdoor where it is not possible to bounce the flash, I use a white foam bought from a artshop & cut to half then attached with rubber band like some of the CSers here, cheap & effective.

    just my 2c
    MFT Rules!
