I hear that the using of flash with babies under 2 weeks old is not recommended, but I feel that I will need to use flash this weekend when I go to see my grand daughter again.
I have some family pictures to take, and to get more depth will have to use a smaller aperture which would mean using flash.
Is the best way to soften the flash to use folder tissue/toilet paper over the flash head, to give more light but it too harsh?
I have the Nissin Di866 MKII which ahs a pull out diffuser to spread the light, and also a white card to soften the light, and am concerned that this may not be enough and may have to overexpose as well.
All advice keenly accepted.
thanks in advance
