Thread: Light Diffuser

  1. Default Light Diffuser

    Anyone know where I can get a good light diffuser?

    I am shooting in strong sunlight and need to take some of that harsh light off my subject.

    A cheap fill reflector can be had with a textured foil covered automobile windscreen reflector. These are inserted against the windscreen when parking in the sun to keep the car cooler. The surface gives a nice difuse light with very soft shadows.

    Or you can just tape aluminum foil, matte side out, to a section of cardboard.

    To actually reduce the direct glare, cheesecloth makes a nice shade filter. A frame of plastic plumbing pipe is lightweight, strong and if strategically selected joints aren't solvent welded it can be dismantled for transport.
