Bounce that flash!

Sean got me the SB-600 bounce flash for Christmas.

I am in love. (With the flash, and with the man.)

I originally wanted the smaller SB-400 flash. I still kind of do, for those times that you want a bounce flash and don't want the 5 pound, as tall as my camera SB-600. But? The one he got me is like a dream come true.

Here's what I mean.

The photo above was taken with my Nikon D60, with the flash on the camera. It's a nice photo, but there are harsher shadows and some glare.

Here's the same photo, taken with the SB-600 bounce flash.

Need I say more?

I WANT THAT FLASH! I was just lamenting how much I love my new D90, but HATE the flash. It's awful. Someone was telling me the professional level cameras don't even come with flashes because the built-ins are THAT BAD. But the result of your pictures ... wow wow wow! Speaking of, cute picture, BTW!

GET IT! You should definitely invest in at LEAST the SB-400 if you take a lot of photos at night. I'd noticed that since I got the camera, I was taking 90% of photos without a flash at all. The camera's flash will do in a pinch, but the bounce is so amazing!

Obviously.. not .. meant for compact digital cameras right? :(

Wow. IT looks wonderful.
