The head of the flash is adjustable so that you can direct the light towards the ceiling or a wall in order to reflect/diffuse the light. It makes a world of difference when compared to using the on-board flash.
|The first shot is with the flash directed straight at the portrait subject.|
|The second is using no flash, just the light from the window.|
|In this third shot I reflected the flash light off of the ceiling.|
The ability to reflect the light off the ceiling is great for evening out the light in the shot. I think this would come in really handy on an outdoor shoot on a really sunny day. Thanks to Scott for lending me his toys!
