Bouncing the Flash - Fuji XE1
Oct 25, 2012

Yes, it's true... you can bounce the little flip up flash on the XE1. The way it pops up seems to lend itself to easily holding it with a finger, pointed at the ceiling... and this is a very welcomed thing.

I'm not normally a flash shooter, AT ALL... so I don't even know the best settings for inside flash shots. I just took these quick to show the difference.

NOTE: Sorry about the subject - I didn't have a model that would sit still otherwise. ALSO these are straight out of the camera. If the white balance seems a little "cool" it's because the ceiling in this room is painted a light but stylish shade of teal blue. LOL

First - direct flash, not bounced:

And now, with the flash bounced (pointed at the ceiling)

and yes, Happy Bunny was upset the ghoul mask won't fit for halloween.
