Hi and welcome back.
Today during my meetup workshop, a question about on camera flash came up. Of course I obliged and showed everyone my system for on camera bounce flash that I learned from Neil Van Niekirk.
Here’s a shot of my assistant/intern Marisa with direct flash:
As you’ll notice the light is harsh and flat. In the next shot, I put on my bounce card and bounced my flash to my left:
Look at the difference in the quality and of the light. It almost looks like I have an off camera flash or softbox on my left.
Here’s my setup:
It’s simple: white foam paper with black gaffer tape backing. I use an elastic band to secure it and away I go.
Check out Neil’s site.
That’s it for now. Till next time, happy shooting.
