theres tons of tutorials out there for that.. most are for something that diffuses the light more though, not just reflects it (a white paper..)

bottom line is if you want good flash buy an sb-600 or another off-camera flash!
a definite improvement over the standard flash though.

That'* pretty neat, myself I have the 'better bounce card' made of white foam taped onto a big strobe. But for real lighting, my setup:

wireless flash triggers



Of course though, that'* a lot bulkier and not for every day usage. Is anybody else here a Strobist?

Technically for pre-1988 Minolta AF (I get TTL metering when mounted on a film body), but it'll work with the wireless triggers manually. I got this one for $25
It may be easier to find as the Vivitar 636AF.
