While you’re likely not the kind of person that drinks hard liquor out of a plastic flask, don’t turn your nose up at the cheap little bottles–they make excellent DIY flash diffusers for soft lit photos.
Most snap on commercial flash diffusers are simply milky white plastic molded to fit the head of your camera flash. At JWNPhoto they demonstrate how you can skip the $20 commercial model and turn a $4 plastic flask into an equally as good diffuser. All you’ll need is a flask from your local market, a marker, and a razor knife to cut the plastic.
Hit up the link below for the details and sample photos.
