If you are writing about TV shows, be aware that the "flash" may be added in post-production.
No, what I meant was when you see on TV photojournalist taking pics of politicians or paparazzi taking pics of celebrities, they never use defuser on their flash.
If you see them on the news etc, it may be that there is nothing to bounce off, or available flash power is a limitation hence the requirement for direct flash. Often getting the picture is more important than making it pretty.
yeah, I guess that makes sense.
I see tons of diffusers used when looking at photographers trying to get news worthy shots.
I'll look harder next time... I have yet to see that.
