I have always been a natural light kinda girl, but with the addition of my new Canon Speedlite, I have been exploring the world of flash photography. Flash can bounce off almost any surface and have varying intensities, depending on the angle and settings.
“Bounce flash is when, rather than firing your flash pointing directly at your subject, you point it elsewhere typically up or at an angle, bouncing off a wall or ceiling. The objective is to “bounce” light to soften it before it hits your subject.”
– Garry Chung, Digital Photography School
Below I used natural light (a window) and then added in some diffused bounce flash to give a very dreamy/high exposure feel.
Anyone else trying new techniques with their camera? I’d love to hear about it in the comments section.
