Poor Mans Flash
04-JUN-2007

Poor Man's Flash

The image on the left was shot with the on-board flash, using a
folded business card and rubber band to direct the flash toward
the ceiling. The shot on the right was shot without the business card.

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi
1/80s f/4.0 at 42.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

Looks like it works pretty good. The light is even.

It hangs on the business card. I guess you have a lot of titles ;-)

Gee... your site is becoming another DP Review! ;-)

Looks like it works well. Nice tip. I'll have to try that. I have also wrapped a folded tissue over the on-board flash to create a poor man's diffuser. The more folds, the more it diffuses.
