How To: Use "foofing" when shooting flash photography

Use "foofing" when shooting flash photography

This video is about the concept of "foofing" when shooting flash photography. For this, you need a camera with a flash that can be directionally adjusted. The process involves simply pointing the flash at either a wall or the ceiling, to avoid having the light from the flash strike the subject directly. This can create several different lighting and shadowing effects, giving photos a less "harsh" look, and also giving them a more "professional" look. The color of the wall or ceiling used will affect the photo, as well.
