    Tilting to the ceiling for a ceiling bounce can cause other effects (depending on the texture and height of ceiling, of course) and it's a case by case, but with a decent diffuser ... your shots are more uniform and controlled. To heck with the ceiling!
    I've never been able to get a diffused flash shot to look better than a ceiling bounce. A diffuser is still too harsh with that front on lighting, can you provide an example? Using a ceiling would provide a much greater area for the light to diffuse on to. If it's there, why not use it? And if it's a bit high, bump up the flash power or the ISO to 200 to compensate.

    Meanwhile ... practicing with a flash ...
    What are you trying to say? My first comment was how well he use fill in flash outside. The lighting was nice and soft. Inside on the last two, it was quite harsh, I was just pointing this out and suggesting perhaps how to remedy it. Sometimes it's positioning the bounce which takes a few tries. Elisha and I were just trying to help. It's all we ever try to do.

    the last set is really nicely exposed frank. sice they are standing still and posing for you you could have even dropped your shutter speed down a little more to let in some more of the ambient light. alot of happy looking people which is always nice to see.

    ryan you are correct, ceiling bounce is always better than direct flash. we always use direct flash, as a last alternative when there are no other options. ie: ceiling has a strong colour cast, obstructions on the ceiling like a very large chandelier, there is no ceiling etc...

    Thumbs up That's the ticket!

    This is definitely more like it, Frank. Good job!

    It seems pretty clear that the HVL-F36AM is up to the task ... and can let you deliver the goods.

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Frank a good set of shots all the way around, You do a nice job of getting a natural feel in a lot of them, not stiff or posed or waiting for the shot, some of course are exactly that, and thats fine, maybe being your own family helps a lot! in the year I have been here frank your knowledge base and skills have really advanced, good job.
    Elisha in your shots who is the lady in purple is that your wife or sister? I think we have seen her before? Anyway no offense ment at all but, WOW is she cute!

    Did you hire a photographer? It will be hard if not close to impossible to take your own son's wedding, I reckon. You will have lots other roles to do.
    Congratulations.
