Very nice results. I can see such application working very well as fill in flash when shooting subjects outside

Thanks Mclui, Gene and Hiroshi. The woodlice pics i posted yesterday were taken with this diffuser, prior to me adding tissue to soften the light further (the light still seemed a little harsh). Made another today just so I could get some pics of how it`s constructed. Only takes 15 minutes to make from start to finish.
Very cold day here so little chance of any macros to test it further, fingers crossed the weathers better here over the weekend

Good job, Mark!

If you should ever forget this part, here is a smoking hot "light" version:

Thanks Beth.

This is a shot I took a short while ago tonight. The light was very low, just barely enough to focus by on the LCD. Flash was cranked up to full (+2), ISO 80,F8, 1/200th sec with the DRC150 lens. I was pretty pleased with the nice even lighting, it`s hard to tell from the shot that it was taken almost at dusk.

WOW, thanks so much for sharing your information and I just love the flower photo. That is why I like this site so much as I am always learning how creative people are with their camera knowledge.

Thanks Annie. I`m on a pretty tight budget so it`s a case of making items myself if possible to save money.
The flower pic was pretty hastily taken just to check the lighting, I was surprised how well it came out. Glad you liked it.
