tim_r4 Posted April 1, 2009 Share Posted April 1, 2009 <p>Most of us have experienced people objecting to our flash equipment - goes something like this -"WOW - that was so bright I can't see a thing" or "I've got spots". I am taking a trip to Washington DC, plan to visit the National Zoo. My question is this: How much care should be taken when taking flash photos, say for instance the gorillas, or tigers? While some animals may not react to an on camera flash, other reactions could be vastly different. Especially with pre-flash. Point is, I'm concerned about disturbing the animals, harming their eyes, possibly causing a problem for me, the zoo, patrons, and of course the animals. <br> I can't imagine using something like a Better Beamer when shooting a face of a large animal, but perhaps I'mm wrong, and there is no issue. Advice welcome.<br> I shoot with a 1Ds Mark III , a 580EX Flash fitted with a 6 x 9" softbox diffuser. Secondary rig when I feel like lugging it around is a Lumedyne system.<br> Any suggestions?<br> Tim R</p> Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
