In camera flash – improving the results

Almost all dslr cameras now have a built in flash, although this is a great convenience the results are often disappointing because the light is direct and harsh so creating hard shadows both on the subjects face and backgrounds.

I found this attachment that looks as if it might be the answer and allow those who do not own an external flash still to utilise bounce flash techniques. I haven’t seen the product, let alone tried it out but it might be very useful for you

Lightscoop® is a smart low-tech device that creates soft, flattering light by redirecting your camera’s pop-up flash to a ceiling or wall.

Don’t let your convenient little pop-up flash ruin your photos with evil red eye, ugly shadows, hot spots, bleached out faces, underexposed colors, and blurry movement that exist only in your photographs, not in the real world.”
