D5100 On-Board Flash Ghetto Diffuser

Until the next chunk of change brings me a more proper speed light, I might as well tweak what I have to work more like I want it to, right? This was my solution:

So I don’t have to resort to software EV flash compensation, because that’s not fully manual experience in my book, and I will now get a much softer and true color light of my environment. No more white wash.

The little guy was a simple piece of vinyl sticker, white to avoid diffuser tint, and it works perfectly.

The third snap was with my Galaxy S2 and that’s how the room looks under “natural” lighting, so my diffuser wasn’t too far off all things considering.
