Up until recently, I've been using the sb800 on-camera. My technique for situations where I'm unable to use bounce flash (outdoors, or indoors with a dark ceiling) has been to use the diffuser dome, and tilt the flash up to about 45 degrees. The results are good, but I'm annoyed that I have to shoot half of my photons into outer space, since it causes the flash to work harder, and depletes its batteries faster. I bought a CB Junior flash bracket last week, and added a LumiQuest mini-softbox today. It eats 1 1/4 stops of light, but it lets me aim directly at the subject without scorching them... at least that's the theory. Here's the rig in portrait orientation. I tried it out on Nancy today, shooting at 70mm from 4 feet away to give it a tough test. The result was encouraging.
