    Pointing a small flash unit, even with a diffuser, is hardly ever the ideal
    solution. Experiment with pointing it up at a 45 degree angle, and if you
    can bounce your flash off a wall, that would be even better.

    I have a question.. is the night club/club promoter is paying you to shoot
    pictures when you shoot inside the night club?

    Thanks. This was really helpful. I do have one question. Does the Gary Fong
    lightsphere work well in rooms with high ceilings and/or dark ceilings?
    Does the disk inside the sphere work as a bouncer? What would you recommend
    for such a situation?

    Very awesome info… have you used the Lumiquest products? Are they worth
    it or it creates a better lighting?

    I have a Canon 7D…and am now pretty low on funds when it comes to getting
    all these little extras I need. Whats your opinion on pop up flash
    diffusers? xx

    Hey Myles, I love your informative videos that covers many aspects of
    nightclubbing. It helped a great deal! I do have one question I would like
    to ask. I have the Omnibounce, but like you said, it doesn’t work to well
    when shooting in a portrait position. I am currently looking for a
    substitute and have my eye on three of Gary Fong’s diffuser. Which of these
    three would you suggest: 1. Lightsphere Collapsible Dome 2. Lightsphere
    Inverted Dome Cloud 3. Lightsphere Inverted Dome half cloud

    Thanks for the comment! I’ve used Lumiquest products, and from time to
    time, I will use their Pocket Bounce. It all depends on your own personal
    style. I have used their pocket bounce and 80/20, but not their other
    diffusers. Personally, I find the pocket bounce to deliver a more ‘punchy’
    kind of light. So, when I want that effect, I will use the pocket bounce.

    @SamuelYCWang I like the half cloud, although I’m using a combination of
    techniques these days and not relying solely on 1 diffuser.

    @nightclubphoto i have a 270ex that doesn’t offer bounce for portraits. I
    am going to get a omni bounce but with it, for portrait do i shoot straight
    on or still change it to 60 degrees?
