Americo, try getting a SC-17 (less than $40) to move the flash off camera, you can hold it in your left hand after you acquire focus, especially on some of the closer in shots, and bounce the light off the ceiling. Don't have any young'uns here to demonstrate at the moment, but I'll see if the cats will cooperate later. If you do manage to find your way to any of the following: SB-600, SB-800, SB-700, SB-900, or SB-910, you can even eliminate the cord and use the pop up flash to trigger the flash remotely. Lots of fun...Show more →
Thank you for the comments, and suggestions, I appreciate them very much! I actually do have 20 ft long sync cord for off camera flash, but then things got to messy, so I bought this device that attaches to the flash and allows the pop up flash to set the flash off! I do some off camera flash, I used to have some strobes, alienbee 300, and one Elinchrom 600RX with a beauty dish, and Rotalux Recta 35.5'' X 43'' (90 X 110) sofbox, however, i was carried away, sold them, and bought my current sysytem! I have not mastered bounced off light yet sadly, so for the most part I work around my flash onboard! Not many people around me like having their photo's taken, so I chiefly focus on whatever still ife I have around the house, and some pet's as well! Funny you should mention it, and the flash stands, I so own some, and I have brought them out to test since Friday, in order to practice for Christmas photo's, however, no one want to be my test dummy, or maybe, I should refrain from calling them test dummies? Thanks again, and happy photography!
