I was just wondering what the main advantages would be with using a flash bracket.
The obvious part is that it moves the flash up higher over the camera...which will reduce or eliminate red-eye. The farther away from the lens the flash is...the better.
A lot of brackets are flip or rotate brackets...these are great. The advantage to these is that they keep the flash over the camera even if the camera is rotated to portrait orientation. This is important because if the flash is off to the side...people's shadows are cast off to the side where you can see them. With the flash high above the camera...the shadows are cast behind the subject and down lower.
