Soft Night Flash

Soft Night Flash, originally uploaded by Jason_M_B.

Tonight I deceided to try some night flash photography, I enabled the high speed sync so that I could life the shutter speed above 1/200. The idea was to reduce the amount of light around the subject and try to get a softer image.

I attached my DIY softbox to the 430EXII and bounced the light off the eves of the house. The lens a Super Macro Takumar f/4 50mm was borrowed from a friend. I do like the quality of image produced by this lens, the only modification to the image is a slight reduction of shadows.
