Using a Flash and a Reflector

I bought a wireless flash (Nissin Di 622 II) and it works great with my 7D (which has a flash commander as the popup flash).  I also got the biggest circular reflector I can find.  Last Nov. 3, I tried it out with a few of my friends in Eman and Tiny’s apartment.

Such wonders!  I’ve never used both properly and again I was amazed at how much they make pictures (particularly portraits) so much better (compared to ambient light only or hard flash only).  Both also make my 15-85mm lens appear much sharper.  Here they are:

  1. Nice shots. Flash is an area about which I know very little–maybe this winter I’ll take the time to experiment more with it. Your results are impressive.
