if i use my 7d's flash to trigger my 580 and 430 - in order to light a piece of art on the wall-- will my that flash be enough to cause a glare on the art??? what could i use to block the flash while still using the cameras one to trigger? i need to shoot about 10 pieces of art that art quite reflective from the front


thanks! oren


Always do right, this will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

A bit of tin foil in front of the popup might redirect that flash around the room to the slaved units without letting any of it cast forward.

I just use my hand to re-direct the light from the pop-up flash if I am shooting at something shiny or reflective.

A tripod!

When shooting artwork I never use flash. Hang the work somewhere that has reasonable light and put the camera on a tripod and use a cable release or the 2 second timer.

titus- that is what i ended up doing! it was horrible lighting but it came out decent. i think it would have looked nicer with a flash set=up but only because the bad lighting the room had. it is for a friend, for free, and she is satisfied so i won't be redoing it, but i offered.

Well, the other thing I do is shoot a color profile each time. I use an x-rite color checker passport. Shoot the white balance, shoot the color checker, build a profile for the shoot. The more I do it the less fussing with color after the fact.
