flash experiment #1

As I often do, I was playing with my camera in a restaurant. This time I tried to bounce flash off random objects and see what happens. Forks, knives, wine glasses, napkins, candle holders - anything that can be put in the way of light was in the game... For this picture of Julia and Lera it was my finger.

Put the finger in front of the flash (0.5cm or so) so it is not completely closed but also there is no direct light from flash to the subject. I had better results in other shots (there is a strip of direct light at the bottom) but I find the actual picture more interesting than others.

Credit cards work well too (but I haven't tried that this time)... and #2 is not likely to be the next post (I may choose to wait for another restaurant to get one;)
