What were the aims of this activity?
(Pointing the flash to the ceiling to create a softer yet still effective use of flash)…To use my mind to work out and correct a harsh flash that casts shadows to a soft flash that is even and flattering on portraits. These images were taken at my exhibition (because I took photos of the event). However for this image I set up the camera settings and distance and my dad pressed the shutter, because I wanted a successful photo of Georgia and I.
What did I get from doing this?
The difference between the 2 images is very clear and I understand why, according to the aperture and distance the subject is away from the camera. This helped me think quick in a situation where it was needed because at an event there is action and it requires quick thinking to get the right shot with the right exposure (if using flash).
Did I fulfill my aims?
I did, because the difference between the two is evident and the second image is definitely a more even distribution of light from the Speedlite flash gun.
