First time I see this model for diffuser
I use one made with higienic paper tube, the end of the tube gets close to the lens tip so works very well for macro =)

Here is a thought about making a budget reflector. How about taking one of those collapsible window shades that you stick on the side window of your car to protect your kids. I mean the ones with the wire frame that you just twist to collapse. You could then just replace the shade material with whatever you would like. I believe that I have even seen these shades at the dollar store. Can't beat that for cheap.

Re: DIY Photography - Homemade Reflectors and Pop-Up Flash Diffusers

I actually thought of one of those window shades while I was looking at other reflectors. That is a great idea! And this diffuser idea is pretty damn nifty too! I can't really tell much of a difference in the two pictures above, but I'd bet that lighting conditions, etc. make a huge impact on that. Definitely gonna have to try this out!

Re: DIY Photography - Homemade Reflectors and Pop-Up Flash Diffusers

Question: What is the left over container made out of? Styrofoam? Plastic? Cardboard?

Re: DIY Photography - Homemade Reflectors and Pop-Up Flash Diffusers

Thanks, Scott! Yes it is a tupperware container. Mine happened to be white but you can use a clear one, too!
