Most of you probably wonder what the heck is bounce card? Just like its name, the main purpose of the card is to deflect lighting from flash. Lately, I’ve been shooting a lot of portraits and wasn’t happy with the finish photos. So, my coworker thinks he might have the solution to my problem. Hopefully, this bounce card will solve some problem with harsh flash. I took some pictures with the bounce card mounted on my flash, but I haven’t got a chance to download the pictures.
i picked up some foam sheets at the local craft store... in this case, both white and black foam sheets comes with sticky back.
I choose velcro to strap the bounce card to the flash... most people just use rubber band, but looks a bit tacky to me..
this is the blueprint my co-worker gave me... after i stick those two foam sheets together, i tape this blueprint to the foam sheet and cut it away.
the inside of bounce card..
exterior of bounce card with velcro attached..
the bounce card attach to the tip of my 430 EX II flash.. with the velcro, it is easily to remove and store it away.
looking at it on the front view.. as the light from the flash hits the bounce card, it will helps distributing the light to the source evently.
finally... this is how it looks
Sorry about all the pictures. It is not the best pictures from my iPhone. Stay tune for pictures that I took with bounce card mounted on the flash.
