    I got the Sigma EF 530 DG ST. I'm so excited. So please let me know what you think. The flash was my only light source, bounced off the ceiling.

    My desire in photography is to capture the essence of life, to make others catch their breath at the purity of the moment captured, I'm still working on that.

    Oh how I hate the currency exchange rate of South Africa. That same flash will cost me about R2500 here.

    Looks good

    Bouncing it off the ceiling was a good choice.

    I would also buy a bracket and a diffuser (if you haven't) for when bouncing isn't available.
