I have a question, I've done research on diffuser and softbox but on which occasions do you use them?
I take pics in clubs, where its dark. I've used handmade diffuser that looks like omni bounce but made of a cloth. and the pictures I take, I feel like the light isn't spread enough on subjects, like sometimes only the upper half of the body is lighten.
I bounce the flash, I use 550EX. (it doesn't swivel left and right..)
I've seen other photographers and they use somehow bigger diffuser(I think it was "softbox"? don't remember) or the one you hold in your hand, and I was doing research online, then saw diffuser and softbox.. and I don't know on which occasions they are used.
also.. when do you use this one the inside is covered with shiny material?
depends on the answers, I may make DIY lightsphere or softbox. or, any other suggestions?
thank you for your time.
