    A little 'spur of the moment' thing, decided I'd have a go at making a flashgun diffuser, and here it is:






    Here's a little 'how to'...

    You will need
    Shoebox
    Paper
    Sellotape
    Pen
    Flashgun
    Stanley knife

    First, find any old shoebox, not too big.


    Now, place your piece of paper on top of the shoebox, sellotaping the edges down to the side


    With a pen, somewhere near the bottom of your box, draw around your flashgun head. Then with the stanley knife, cut out the shape (it's best to start off a little bit smaller, and gradually make the hole bigger, just so you dont make it too big)


    And bobs your uncle, place your flashgun in it and fire away, note: you'll have to up your flashgun power to correctly expose the pics.

    Enjoy!

    After a trip to Black's yesterday I'm all for anything that saves a bit of money. It seems like any little gadget geared to photographers is 10x the price of what it should be.

    Thanks for the instructions!
