Everybody wants to take better pictures but it’s often something as simple as the camera’s flash that can cause our pictures to look bad. Red-eye, hot spots, uneven lighting, deer in the headlights look, underexposed colors, bleached out faces- these are all problems we see when using a camera’s flash. The Lightscoop is an essential low-tech solution for SLR and DSLR users to take better flash photos.
The Lightscoop attaches to your camera’s hot shoe and fits right over your camera’s pop-up flash. The device simply redirects the light from the flash to the ceiling or wall, creating a soft flattering light for your subjects.
You’ve seen the professionals using big umbrella attachments to diffuse the light or use external flashes aimed at the ceiling- well this gives you a similar effect but on a much smaller, inexpensive and more portable scale. Bouncing the flash off the ceiling gives a more natural lighting feel- as if the subject was well lit by an overhead light. A simple flash-fill gadget for better picture taking. Cool photography tool.
