Light that is directed toward an object such as a wall or ceiling so that it reflects (or "bounces") light back onto the subject.
In flash photography, directing the burst of light from the flash so it literally bounces off a ceiling, wall, or other surface before it illuminates the subject. This method of flash is often preferred because it softens the overall light and eliminates the harsh, frontal effect of an on-camera, straightforward flash.
Reflected (indirect) light; A light source that is directed away from the subject toward some nearby light-toned surface which reflects the light to the subject..
The light illuminating the subject has been bounced of another surface before it strikes the subject. This is used to increase the apparent size of the light source and therefore soften potentially harsh shadows.
Soft light that gets to the subject indirectly; e.g, off walls, ceilings or reflecting devices.
Light bounced into a reflective surface (a wall, a ceiling, a studio umbrella, a card) to illuminate a subject with softer light, reducing harsh shadows. The color of the reflective surface will determine the color of the light bounced into the subject.
Light that is reflected off ceilings and walls to illuminate the subject indirectly.
light that is directed away from the subject toward a reflective surface.
An even, diffused light over an area that results from light being reflected off of the ceiling or wall in a room.
Light that is bounced off a reflective surface, such as any of the following: a white card, an aluminized reflector, a wall, or the ceiling.
Light that does not travel directly from its source (bounce flash) to the subject but is first reflected off another surface. This technique softens the light by directing it at a ceiling, wall, board, or similar surface before it reaches the subject.
Light that is reflected to illuminate a subject indirectly.
