Beforerecently I had usually avoided using the flash of the camera for the fear that it would cause the images look flat and somewhat artificial, especiallyif the subjectwas close to me. Yet after some experimenting I realised that there ismuch to discover about the virtues of fill flash!

The following threeare straight from the camera and all handheld shots (so please forgive the imperfections:-) ) taken with my good old S70 at Manual mode; Av: f/2.8Tv:1/2 ; spot metering, nearer than 1 foot to the subject and . I wonder ifyou thinkthe paperdiffuser dida decentjob

#1 no flash

bahadir,

I like the idea- it works. I have, in my past (and present, for that matter) experimented with different ideas and found some to be helpful, and some not. By the way, that is a mean looking truck

In the diffused pic, the colors seemed a bit warm, fixable in pp, but the lighting was where it needed to be, maybe a tad brighter would help. Only my humble opinion. Very good!

Robert

Robert, thanks foryour encouragingfeedback!In fact my subject, due to its reflectory surface, was harder than human skin toapply fill flashfrom a shortdistance without ovorexposed hotspots, which is relief Btw, that'smyson'sscale radio control truck which he sometimes agrees to exchange with my toys :G

Andhere's my update for the diffuser, which has proved to serve better.
