    Hey folks.
    I need an advice on a bounce card. I'm using nikon guns and the built-in THING that is in SB800 works ok but leave horrible shadows behind the subject. I also made one from cardboard and foil and it lights up well but those shadows are still present.
    So far the closest I get away to softening them up is a omnibounce on sb800 with that homemade foil but it isn't good enough. When time permits, I set up sb600 as a backlight and it does the trick:thumbup: or I just set the umbrellas and I'm in heaven :thumbup::sexywink:but with a 2yr old running around, I don't always have time for setups.
    All advice and examples are welcomed.
    Thanks a Lot.

    Made it myself with 10 minutes time and under $1 in materials. It works fantastic, especially for off camera use when placed on a lightstand in tighter environments (like reception halls and churches).
