And what is a bounce device? Obviously ceilings and walls are your best bounce devices as they'll always be bigger than what you can get on a camera. In which case the tupperware works pretty. Don't get me wrong it's far from perfect and I'm always looking for alternatives but it's the best I've found so far. One thing I will say is that I've tested just shooting the straight flash up into a ceiling vs with the tupperware and I liked the look of the tupperware better. But one advantage of shooting directly off the ceiling is the balance in light level between near objects and far objects is improved somewhat since less light is being directed straight forward. For this reason I'm looking at trying out this technique some more.
This is a great thread..glad I chimed in. The pie plate was ingenious and just checked I've got about 5 or six I am finagling from the wife. No baking this weekend This might seem obvious to most but just in case, after watching a Joe McNally video recently he points out only to use a white wall to avoid any color cast. Didn't see any mention thouhgt just in case for newbies. While shooting a rock band the other day I was planning on using some wall or ceiling bounce for more light fill. Got to the club and all the walls were "vampire blood red" in color. That ended that thought process. Disappointing to say the least as it was bare flash or high ISO the whole evening,
