Flash Test

By widtink
Been messing about with my new flash (nissin 620 mk2) and been struggling a wee bit i have now sussed out that aperture has a direct bearing on the overall exposure !!! i thought it being automatic the camera/gun combination would compensate for aperture changes.Iam using Nikon D7000 so any advice on using the gun is much appreciated. Ithink the lighting in this one is more subtle than my last effort.

You certainly seem to be getting the hang of this rather impressive piece of kit. GrinGrinGrin

Nice shot Rod, was the flash straight the vase or did you bounce it? Only askin for you have a bright spot right in the centre. If its straight ahead maybe a diffuser would take the edge off.

Still better than I can do so well done.

I can see what ErictheViking is saying and I do agree with him but it still doesn't alter the fact that this is a very good image, well done.

For a straight on flash pretty good, the only other way apart from a diffuser! is if you have a tilt head and can bounce the flash off the wall higher up, looks an interesting flagon, like it nice one Rod, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
