So this was a bit of a first for me. Only recently have I've acquired a fairly decent speedlight (SB-600) as well as a fairly decent bounce card to go with it in hopes of improving my flash photography. I haven't had a chance to really test it out until this night and I was a bit nervous at first but I'm glad I did.
It's only a small step towards where I want to be someday. Yes, it looked like I was walking around with a big hunk of junk that night BUT for these type of photos, TOTALLY worth it. No washed out face, no harsh shadow AND the background is still decently lit. Plus, on a few occasions, some people actually thought Tiffany hired a photographer for the night. SCORE!
Happy birthday Tiffany, hope you had fun and thanks for inviting me out =)
