Tip & How-To about Cameras
Wanting to lessen the power of your flash with under exposing your picture/subject?
Want to add natural light bounce to your subject and lessen shadows?
Wanting to have a pop-up flash diffuser without spending a dime?How about removing shadow cast when doing some macro shots?
If your answer to these questions are YES, then time to read this DIY guide. This should be easy to follow and the material(s) needed should be available in your home.
First, let's briefly discuss what a diffuser is. A diffuser lessens the strong/ harsh light coming from your camera's built-in pop-up flash, creating a softer and distributes the light evenly on your picture.
There are lots of pop up diffusers out there and are relatively cheap. However here's one that I've tried and tested and worked fine for me. Take the cap of your empty roll-on(deo) place it with your hand, right at the front of the pop-up flash(in it's popped out position). Then take a picture using flash. Try it with and w/o the cap to see the difference. Not impressed? Try it first and explore new ways of getting better pictures.
