If your shooting photos with a flash its nice to have a diffuser, with a couple household items you can make a quick, simple, functional flash diffuser for almost free!
Here is what I did.
Take a clear plastic container with a clear top and trace the front shape of your flash on the bottom of the container. If your container is not clear trace the flashes outline on the inside.
Place the container right side up so that the bottom is on a flat hard surface (like a cutting board). Now using a razor knife I find it easiest to make several passes to cut the line earlier traced on the container.
Using a paper towel, napkin, tissue or other similar item to be place on the front of the container, close the lid so the paper towel is tightly locked into place.
Put the new flash diffuser on your flash and take some pictures!
