Increasing head rotation on a Canon 430EX flash
David Hobby. I don't love spending lots of money on equipment, which is why I opted to buy the cheaper Canon Speedlite 430EX flash instead of the bigger, badder 580EX. One of the things I sacrificed with that decision was the ability to rotate the flash head more than 90 degrees to the right. Most flashes will rotate a full 180 degrees to the left, but for some inexplicable reason, both Canon and Nikon limit the right rotation to 90 degrees on most of their flashes. Read on to learn how I remedied the situation and increased the 430EX head rotation from 270 to 340 degrees.

Tiny Hands... Big Hearts
Tiny Hands International is an organization based in Lincoln, Nebraska, which works to rescue young women and girls from the sex trafficking industry in Asia. These girls are led from their homes in Nepal and surrounding countries with the promise of a new life and high paying job that will help pull their families from their poverty-stricken lives. Instead, they are sold into slavery at brothels in India. The promise of hope turns into a nightmare more horrible than most of us can imagine.
