I was getting shadows behind people before and it was suggested to get a bracket. I no longer have that shadow behind people, it helped as suggested it would.The flash bracket adds nothing when bouncing your flash. Brackets are for off-setting the flash to avoid red-eye, and very flat drivers license looks.
Thank you. On dark eyes, are you saying the inner parts of the eye? Anything I can do ?Not bad at all! It does show the issue (minor) with using only bounce light; that is, that there eyes are a bit darker than might be ideal, but regardless, a good, solid image. Which bracket?
Thank you. I was pressed for time. I just took the names off for posting here. I was hoping people would overlook it for the purpose of c & c.Nice. Why not take off the name tags unless they are somehow important for the image.
OK. Thanks for the tip. I will attach a business card to the flash next time. I get tired of the druggy eyes though.My first thought was also about the dark eyes. As far as I know, there are two choices: either balance out the ambient and flash so that there is less of a difference between the two, or bounce from a different angle. My favorite angle is to bounce the light from corner of the wall behind me and the ceiling. Then, instead of the light coming straight down on top of them (like it is here) it comes from high up but also angled toward their eyes. Of course, depending on the size and design of the room, this isn't always an option. You could always throw up the little bounce card that most flashes have...then most of the light bounces but a little bit gets thrown forward, and it should be enough to brighten the eyes up.
