Bounced Off Ideas

Set up a quick lighting scenario.  With my main lighting coming from behind.  Fill light was set up using a bounce card (large white mat board)  placed over my lens to bounce all that light back at me.   It certainly made for a soft wrapping light - but honestly I would never shoot this way as I would be placing a large blocking piece between me and my subject ~ not at all engaging with my subject.  It's bad enough that I feel my face is always behind the camera and lens when I'm making portraits.  But to have an additional blockage separating us just doesn't work for me as a photographer.

Good learning exercise ~ chalk it up to experience ~  placed in the "not one of the best ideas" pile!
