Ben and my new light mod.

Angel Boy

WOW!!!!! Playing with a new light modifier tonight. Cost? $0.50! A sheet of black craft foam cut to a 1/2 snoot and attached to the 580EX II with a hair band. Point the flash at a side wall and you get beautiful bounced light mainly from the wall and wrapping from the ceiling. This may become my my main go-to indoor event light mod! The 40D was in manual metered to -1EV. The 580EX was in iTTL at 0EV FEC. So VERY much better than the deer-in-the-headlights direct flash or even direct bounce.

  1. He looks so sweet, and he is! But how did you get him to sit still for this?

    • Ben LOVES being my test subject. And he absolutely hams for the camera most of the time. I can usually get 5-10 minutes of dedication out of him, which is an eternity for a 5 year old. I try not to abuse it. 🙂

  2. Of all your pictures I have seen, this is probably one of my favorite. Nice side lighting and contrast. I like how the highlights are not blown out. The catch light in the eyes is almost perfect.
