DIY on the cheap.

Who says photography gear has to be expensive?

I stumbled upon this DIY diffuser a week or two ago and decided to give it a try.

"Professional" diffusers retail for about $60.00 and the DIY version costs about 20 cents per.

I headed over to Ikea and picked up a roll of the transparent drawer mat for $7.99 and followed the directions. I had extra velcro laying around and used it to fasten the diffuser to my SB-800.

I was pleasantly surprised with my initial tests. Shadows were nice and soft and the subject was evenly lit.

I'm planning on putting the diffuser to use during my vacation and will post some examples.
