Bounce Flash to Obtain a More Natural Look

Bounce flash for more natural look

Bounce flash means aiming flash at a wall or ceiling in order to illuminate the subject with reflected light. Because reflected light is softer than direct light, bounce flash produces more natural looking photos, with light more evenly between subject and background.

Bounce flash off the ceiling to brighten a room.
By bouncing flash off the ceiling the room will be filled with reflected light that naturally brightens both subject and background. This technique can avoid such problems as dark background or overly bright subjects.

Bounce flash off a wall to produce a natural sense of depth.
By bouncing flash off a wall you can simulate – at any hour and in any location – low morning or afternoon sunlight streaming through a window.  This technique is also useful for bringing out depth in the subject since it creates horizontal or diagonal shadows.
