Bounce Flash vs Direct Flash

A photography friend of mine, Greg Schneider, was showing me the difference between direct flash, flash bounced off the ceiling and flash that was bounced off the wall.

The way Greg described it, by bouncing the flash off the wall, it was the equivalent of opening a window in the wall and letting the light in. It also has the benefit of diffusing the flash so the shadows aren’t so harsh.
