Photo Quickie: Reflecting
Try different angles with your flash unit(s) to eliminate unwanted shadows on your subject. You can also utilize your surrounding and reflect the flash off of something. If you’re creating photographs indoors direct the flash at a light colored wall or ceiling; it works wonderfully to cast a nice even spread of light over your subject. If you are shooting nature photographs small pieces of white cardboard work great as reflectors and fit perfectly into a pocket on your camera bag.
