    Default Iszit necessary to use a bounce card/flash reflector for outdoor Dinner?

    Hi

    I'm using 430 II speedlite with a Diffuser.

    I'm wonder should I use bounce card/flash reflector for outdoor shot?

    If is needed, Is Flash Reflector/Diffuser Kit sell by artworkfoto good enough for me?

    Thanks in advance.

    if you need a lot of flash power, best to point flash head directly at subject, with a diffuser.
    Bounce card probably requires more flash power, which your 430EX might not be able to provide for an outdoor shoot.
    Exploring! :)

    Like what Bro ZCA mentioned, Ur flashgun might not have enough power to provide for if subject to cam distance is a concern (far). Any nearer workign distance it should be fine.

    Normally for outdoor shot i have a demb flip it pro on top of my flashgun always (either as fill light or main source of illumination)

    I turned PRO in diaper chg!

    Not sure if this can be of any help. So far it's working well for me and my 580EX II.
