Using a bounce card
6 months ago
Hello everyone! Recently, I bought A Better Bounce Card (Large) for my Metz 44 flash. However, it seems like the light is harsher when I have the card on my flash. I think I followed the instructions correctly in installing the card, but...
Ceiling bounce without the card
Ceiling bounce with the card
Both photos have the same settings. 1/125, F4.5, ISO 100, Daylight white balance. I really have no idea where I went wrong. Would the card give me a much softer light in outdoor environment or indoors with really high ceiling/no bounce-able surface nearby?
I would be most appreciative of any constructive input.
