How to Make Perfect Holiday Photos With a DIY $1 Lightsphere

I hate using regular flash for photography. It makes everyone look horrible and everything look cheesy. Fortunately, there's a very easy fix that would only cost you one dollar. This is what you need to perfectly illuminate your photos:

1. Grab one small piece of Vinyl drawer liner.
2. Get some velcro.
3. Follow the instructions in the video above.

Done. Any photo would now be evenly illuminated with beautiful soft light instead of everything getting outlined with sharp shadows, every eye getting red-eyed and every pore of your skin growing to the size of the Krakatoa crater. [ISO 1200 via Petapixel]

You could also get a Sto-fen or equivalent omni diffuser. I have seen them as low as a couple bucks on Amazon. A solid fit when purchased for the correct flash mount and you would never have to take it off.
