Lost your white plastic canister flash diffuser? Out of your home and need an alternative? This is what you should do!
So I was out with my friends, and by the time I left my house, I forgot to bring my DIY film canister flash diffuser for my colorsplash flash! I knew that if I used my colorsplash flash without it, I’d have overexposed shots, or a bright flash covering up my friends faces! An alternative had to be made, and so I thought to myself, tissue! Tissue is everywhere!
Next thing i needed was tape, to stick the tissue to my colorsplash flash of course. I kindly ask the waiter if they had any tape, and lucky me the waiter gave me some. Then gave me a weird look, which I didn’t mind because it was a weird request.
Here’s what you do:
1. Get tissue and fold it into a size small enough to fit your flash
2. Tape that tissue to your flash
3. Take pictures!
I was hesitant about this, worrying that it might not work. But when I got the results of my film, I was so happy that the tissue did its job! Tissue…more than just wiping off tears =)
