I love my Canon Rebel. And I REALLY love my 50mm lens (thanks for the recommendation, Rachel). But do you know what I DON’T love??? My flash. I can’t stand using my flash…it makes pictures just look gross.
I’m no photography expert by any means, but I love using natural light when I take pictures. Of course, it’s not really possible to use natural light when it is dark outside. Unfortunately, I can’t prevent my kids from doing super-cute, picture-worthy things at nighttime. So sometimes the flash is oh-so-necessary. The picture, though, leaves much to be desired. The lighting is harsh and yucky. A more expensive flash is out of the question (at least right now) because they are SO expensive! You could also attempt to take a picture without the flash, using only the artificial lights in your house…but that normally leaves the picture a little orange-y and a bit blurry.
From their website, “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.” And the best part is…it’s under $30!
Just to give you a little demonstration. Here are three pictures I took of our dog Sage at night.
|“ORANGE” you glad you didn’t take this picture???|
|Much better! Beautiful color and softness!|
