What are you looking for

Lighting A hotel birthday event with mostly family groups of 2 to 6 people, where the light falls in a soft arc on them lifting them from their surroundings but not losing them.
Ideally the light will be diffuse enough to soften shadows from a canon 430 speedlite on top of camera.

A Gary Fong type diffuser is one option i might try, i've not really got on previously with a 6 inch softbox.

The large flash bender + soft cover might do the trick.

This will give you some idea of how good they are.

Thanks Paul, super set of vids, i ran through 3 of his series. I've been enjoying a simple flash card for a year now and this seems like a natural step up with something i know i like.
Now is it time to look at eTTL triggers instead of TTL, i'll sleep on that and might start another thread on those after looking around.
Thanks again.

Thanks Paul, I just got the large flash bender this afternoon, felt like jumping straight in and tested it on location - I like it thanks, it certainly captures attention when on camera Smile.

Pretty much any flash unit is too big attached to my tiny little camera, at least it forces me to be more creative Smile

From what I`ve seen of it (I don`t always use it) its diffusion panel is good as well.
