    Great shots! The ones around here aren't nearly as colorful.

    Daan, you said in one of your threads that you were using the 430EX with a diffuser for the lighting - are you using the 430 on the hot shoe and the diffuser that's built into it, or are you doing something else?

    Works like a charm. I heard from TCImages about this thing first and im really glad i bought it. Makes a world of difference.

    when you are going to invest in that, this is also a good thing to buy:

    Else you have to stick some bits of velcro on your flash (the bits come with the softbox) With this strap you can just remove it when you are done shooting. Else you'll just have bits of velcro attached to your flash for like forever.
