Playing with a new toy
I picked up a small softbox that attaches directly to my flash. When I say small, I mean small, only 6″x9″. To test it out and find out if it does a better job of dispersing light that bouncing my flash off the ceiling I did a couple self-portraits. You can’t take it to a shoot until you test it out right?
The results were fine, but I don’t think it made too much difference. Although part of that could be because I had it set up off camera as a slave with the little pop-up flash as the master. For some reason when I do this, the slave won’t sync at anything above 1/16 power. But I had it set up close enough to the subject to offset the low power. It still came in pretty strong. Judge for yourself.
