Hi

I'm finding that I tend to use bounce-flash a lot. I point the flash at the ceiling, probably slightly angled rather than straight up. I rely on the bounced light to illuminate the subject.

The question is should I be using the wide-angle diffuser that comes attached to my SB-910 when I'm doing this? My understanding is that the diffuser is for wide-angle shots, not specifically for use in bounce flash, but that some people recommend using it when bouncing light off the ceiling.

Can anyone advise me?

thanks
