Use the flash... turn it around, fire off with the bounce card behind... then see how far the light goes and cut accordingly.

I prefer a matte surface. If you really want it that smooth might as well use a mirror right?

im not sure abt using bounce card for wedding. unless youve got a super quick recharge flash, a bounce card may suck too much juice from your falsh. in crucial moments like weddings, i would think that you need a quick recycle rate.

For shooting with bounce card, LS, omnibounce, or ceiling bounce, of course will consume more battery power.

For SB800, can use the 5th battery, or get a external battery pack for you flash unit.

use the 5th battery add-on, up your iso to 400+ ... and it should be able to recharge fast enough ...
