Natural Skin Tones

Bounce flash is an easy and effective lighting technique. When the flash head is rotated to bounce flash position, you can bounce the flash off the ceiling or a wall to soften shadows and produce a more natural-looking picture. It’s easy and brings a whole new element to the enjoyment of photography.


When the flash head is tilted up, the flash can be bounced off the ceiling to create soft light. The result is a natural-looking picture with natural skin tones.

Direct flash casts a harsh light


Bounce flash is affected by the color of the ceiling or the wall. If the ceiling or wall is not white, use white paper or a sheet to bounce the flash light off.


Just set your Nikon Speedlight to bounce position.
