Use bounce flash and light modelling to get a more creative portrait

You've already seen in a previous film how you can bounce the flash off walls and ceilings when using an external flashgun that has a swivel head (most do!). Bouncing the flash gives a nice overall soft light, but is it possible to use on-camera flash flash to take slightly more creative flash portraits, images that looks a little more polished than a standard bounced flash portrait? Yes it is.

Watch the film to learn more.
