Cross the flash off the list

February 25th, 2007 Posted in People

The nice UPS man brought a SB-600 to me last week. After some playing around and testing, I’ve finally put it to some good use. I’m amazed at how good the pictures look with the flash and how natural the light looks. No longer do I have to open the apeture wide and set the ISO to 800 or 1600.

This one was shot at f/3.5, 1/600 sec, ISO 200. I bounced the flash off the wall behind me at 45 degrees and took the flash down 1.3 EV, making it a bit softer. Also, I’m only using the on-board diffuser. (That’s the next investment.)
