Adjusting the bounce flash angle
Simultaneous use of the flash light from this flash unit and the bounced light produces uneven lighting. To determine the bounce flash angle, take the flash photography conditions into consideration, such as the distance to the bounce surface, the distance from the camera to the subject, and the focal length of the lens.
Examples of flash photography conditions: the distance to the bounce surface, the distance from the camera to the subject, the focal length of the lens
To bounce the flash light upward
Determine the bounce flash angle with consideration for the focal lengths of the lens listed in the following table.
|Focal lengths of the lens||Bounce angle|
|70 mm minimum||20°, 40°|
|28 mm - 70 mm||60°|
|28 mm maximum||80°, 120°|
Tips on using the bounce sheet
The bounce sheet creates a highlight in the subject's eyes and makes the subject look more vibrant.
