Diffuse thinking

Stephen and Yi-Hsian's wedding photos were helped along by judicious use of the new cheapo Vivitar 283 flash I bought about 2 hours before the event. I have to apologise to everyone who I blinded (half or wholely) by not realising quite how strong it was! The professional photographer (whose name is currently escaping me) was using a very nice homemade flash diffuser, using a combination of clear stiff plastic in a long tube with diffusing paper inside. Apparently the combination of the two is ideal. Definately a trick to try next time, especially as the guy in the shop was trying to sell me a $20 diffuser.
