A little photography experiment

As I was strolling through Pinterest yesterday (yup, totally and blissfully addicted), I came across this picture:

So today I was snapping away indoors on this cloudy, snow-expectant day, and thought I would give it a try.  Wanna see the difference a little strategically placed business card makes?

These are straight out of the camera shots taken on full auto mode with flash.

The first shot: dark and shadowy, esp the background:

The second shot, with flash bouncer installed: light, bright and airy

Is that amazing or what?!
Just thought I'd share.


  1. Wow, what a difference. Thanks for the tip.

  2. I did this once when I had to take a quick head shot of myself and didn't have my strobe set up. You can't even tell that it was taken with an on camera flash.


Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I love that you are leaving a little note to let me know you were here!
