Suhit recently posted an article that explains how to make your own flash diffuser for built-in camera flashes using an empty film roll canister, but the article here explains an easy and cheap (if you don't count the price of the airplane ticket!) way of making a flash diffuser for external camera flashes with an unused airline barf bag. It's funny that I came across this article last week since I'm headed out to Washington DC this Wednesday and should be able to get my hands on a few of these "flash diffusers" while in transit. I'll be interested to try this out for myself since I normally just aim the flash at the ceiling and bounce the light onto the subject of the photo. This seems to work well, but I wonder if the barf bag would work even better.
