Did a search on the forum and found that many ppl here made their own bounce cards...Can anyone post some pics of their DIY bounce cards as I dont know what it looks like:sweat: and how to make it... TIA
The size of your card will depend on the size of your flash unit. Use thick robust card either paper or any other suitable material. Velco will be useful for attaching the card to the flash unit.
Enjoy designing one for yourself. Make a few for spares or for give away to fellow photographers you know. Cheers!
Progress can only be more enjoyable
when it comes with sincerity and appreciation
for the harmony between colleagues in the
various department, resources and environment.
Likewise it is the same with a photography forum.
You know the white boards used to paste the advertisements? You can see lot's of them during this Christmas period. I got it from the Big Book Shop for slightly over four dollars. The size is about one meter by half a meter.
When you diffuse flash, you spread out the light over a larger area so that it becomes less intense. To diffuse your flash, you can cover it with some wax paper to see the effect, though you'll be cutting its effective range.
Its not as effective as bouncing since the light still comes from a direct point source, but it reduces the "hotspots" you see on subjects' faces.
If you still would like to know, I cut foolscap paper (extras after exams) into rectangular shape with the width slightly longer than my flash. I then laminate this paper and attach a velcro strip to both the flash and now laminated paper (the soft side of velcro to my flash). After that, voila!
