Have you tried different colored ping pong balls to add a warming or similar look to the light?

I found the following combination to be exceptional for capturing children:

The above shows a ping-pong ball adapted to the flash included with the E-M5.

If I'm doing product shots, like the image above I use the FL-300R on a stand and trigger it using the included flash.

Because the above configuration use an f1.4 lens (@f1.4!) I get most existing light images with just a tiny amount of flash to fill in the deep shadows. I've used the above combo in churches, conferences, family events, weddings and then some.

Cheers!

This is clever I think I may have to adapt this and play with it, thanks for the image as well.
