Conventional photography is an impossibility without light. When there is insufficient or unsuitable light available to take a picture, it becomes essential to have a ready source of supplementary light to fulfill the need. The 952AF series flash units provide large quantities of light under the complete control of the photographer and his camera (Canon, Nikon, or Pentax). Each is custom-designed and manufactured to compliment the capabilities of the camera for which it is intended.
What are the advantages of Bounce and swivel?
Bounce and Swivel is a great alternative to direct flash, especially for people pictures made under low ceilings or near white walls. As its name implies, you can swivel and bounce the flash off a nearby surface rather than blasting it directly at your subjects. Bounce creates much softer light for highlights and shadows that better convey the shaping of a person?s face. Also,when shooting groups two or three people deep, a ceiling bounce can provide much more even lighting front-to-back than direct. Further good news: bounce is an effective way to prevent redeye. Why does it work so well? The broader the light source relative to the size of the subject, the softer, less harsh and more enveloping the light. Because bounce flash essentially turns a nearby wall or ceiling into your light source, it creates a much, much softer light than your flash?s tiny flash tube. Also, when bouncing off a ceiling, your light will fall from above onto your subject to create the same shaping of the human face as a bright, cloudy day in nature.
