This weekend I was in a position I've never been before:
|IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!|
HTTP response: 404 | MIME changed to 'text/html' | Byte size: ZERO
For the first dance I used flash for some of the images and ambient light for the rest.
The images came out ok, but I found that the ceiling/black drapes were too low and well....black. Direct flash blew out the bride in relation to the background and the white in the chequered flooring just glared everything out as well. Bounce card wasn't helpful either.
I didn't use a diffuser as I never do, I always bounce the flash but in this situation I was really stuck.
On reflection I would of used an off camera flash cord and bounced it off of one of the white floor tiles. But would that of worked or would I of been better off just putting a softbox in the corner with a monolight?
