Washed out flash photos? Here’s a fix!

Using an on-camera flash and having problems with the results?

Some areas washed out because of too much light, and other areas not evenly lit?

Maybe you need a flash diffuser?!

Well, you probably do – but you may not have known there was a solution until now!

The Frog uses a Lightsphere by Gary Fong.  You can check it out here.

This is just one example of a diffuser – there are many different types from several manufacturers.  Some look strange, some look stranger, but they do work!

Simply put – these attachments break up and diffuse the light from your flash and spread the light out more evenly throughout your subject area.

You could probably try a plastic milk bottle on your flash, but you’d look kinda funny and because it’s engineered to hold milk and not diffuse light, you might save a few bucks but really not solve your problem.  Treat yourself and get a diffuser…

There are three shopping days left before you have to play family photographer.

Stop by your local camera shop so you can shoot like a pro (or at least look like one and impress your friends and family this holiday season)!
