My SB-600 from Adorama came in today with the Gary Fong Lightsphere 2, and above are some test shots. All settings were the same – f/4.2, 1/60, 55mm, SB-600 flash compensation was at -0.7. The lightsphere, I didn’t think made that that much of a big difference, especially when there were white walls around me to bounce the flash off of. It does make it a little more softer, but I’m not sure if it’s worth $40. Maybe I’ll need it more when there aren’t any walls for flash bouncing. I’ll work on familiarizing myself more with the SB-600 in the coming weeks. I haven’t had much time to play around with my camera and gear lately because I’ve been taking work home with me (big deadline coming up) and house-shopping. Anyway – goal this week is to shoot at least once and post at least once more before the weekend is over!
