There are two kinds of people who take photos: professional photographers with high quality equipment and...me, aka your average woman with an entry level DSLR. I love my Nikon D60 with the power of a thousand suns and I actually have taken the time to read the manual and learn how to operate it from an amateur perspective. However, I was having such a hard time getting my indoor photos to look decent when there wasn't full daylight streaming through my windows let alone warm enough weather to get outside. Enter the Lightscoop:
The Lightscoop is the small mirrored piece that slides OVER your pop-up flash and bounces the flash off the ceiling or wall. From the Lightscoop website: The Lightscoop redirects the light from your pop-up flash to a ceiling or wall, which creates a broader light source and causes it to come from a more natural direction. Voilà — a professional’s solution in an inexpensive gadget anyone can use.
The Lightscoop has come in handy so many times when I've wanted to get a quick photo of one of my kids being extra cute or silly but the lighting wasn't that great. It's an easy and CHEAP alternative to an external flash like you might see a professional photographer using. Why compromise your photos with ugly flash when you can kick it up a notch with the Lightscoop? I highly recommend.
