best flash accessory for night run?
Apr 18, 2013

Hi,

I will be taking some pictures of a night run (Glow Run) on Saturday and will use my 430EX on camera for practicality.

What is the best accessory to use to get some good shots?

I have the diffuser cap , a mini softbox , or I could use a self made bounce card (similar to the one comes with the 580EX) ?. I have also seen bounce cards like these but I'm afraid I'm too late to get one

Using the mini softbox the light seems to be still hard, maybe using the diffuser cap + mini softbox?

Any suggestions on settings? bump ISO to get some ambient, mid aperture to get group of people (5-6) in focus

thanks in advance,

Mike
