If you could choose 1 flash accessory under 20 dollars... (lightdome, diffuser, softbox)
6 months ago

ProI want to buy a flash for my camera. Then it struck me that there are so many accessories that comes with a flash. If you could choose 1 flash accessory under 20 dollars... (lightdome, diffuser, softbox) what would you choose?

Put yourself in my senario. I shoot Mainly indoors, but outdoors as well. I usually shoot large family portraits (16 peopleish) outoors and indoors. I also shoot individual portraits and smaller family portraits (4 people) I always shoot with the flash on my camera, and use it as a walkaround flash, i dont do studio work. Which accessory would be the best in my scenario?

I also dont really like the super evident look that flash was used (harsh flash)

I came up of a list of products that are under 20 dollars, if you have a better better one that you recommend, id be glad to see it.
