    a few moments later
    the very same natural light, but... FROM THE SIDE
    most women won't find this flattering

  2. please show us a similar comparison
    same person
    same moment
    2 different directions of lighting

    thanks, in advance
  3. Here's two were taken only 2 minutes apart and with almost the exact same camera settings. The only change was in how the flash was managed.

    Direct harsh flash

    Bounce with a Fong Lightsphere....
  4. Kap....
    exactly what i was looking for here
