As a blogger and new DSLR photographer, I have quickly learned the #1 rule for good photos can be summed up in two words: Natural Light. I strive whenever possible to shoot photos of my finished projects only when there is ample daylight to go around.
I am thrilled to say that I have finally found the answer to that conundrum: Lightscoop!
This little device is downright brilliant. The concept is simple: Slide the Lightscoop over your camera’s pop-up flash to redirect that light to a ceiling or wall. The result? Gorgeous, brightly lit and natural-looking photos!
At $29.95, this is a fantastic, affordable, effective alternative to an expensive external flash. And, just to give you an idea of how wonderfully Lightscoop works, let me present Exhibit One: photos of sweet baby George taken earlier this week.
