i had been using flash bracket and direct flash last time.but dued to the extra weight n fragile of the bracket,its off from my camera now.
I like shoting portrait shots but was always getting shadows on the side even with bounce light,sometimes uneven light on the face of the people.
I did tried light spheres years back,now come the new whale tail,is it better or almost the same?Can it be used as direct flash n when shooting portrait will there be shadows?????n also if the subject is so near a backdrop,there should bbe some shadows as its not directly on top of the lens right,make more sense?pls advice.

Get rid of shadows on the background totally? Blast the background with 2 or more lights.

Want nice lighting on the face? Don't use camera mounted flash.

If your problem is shadows on the side, then the flash flip bracket is the way to go, not the diffusion devices, which does a different function. A single flash with a flip bracket positioned correctly will solve your side shadow problem.

A full bounce on the ceiling will also eliminate the problem; WITHOUT using any diffusion device. A diffusion device would create the shadows because of a segment of light being thrown forward.
