The right flash can make or break your shot. Unfortunately, not all built-in flashes are created equal. DIY web site Instructables demonstrates how to create a worthy on-the-spot flash diffuser using an empty cigarette packet.
The key tip is to remove the foil from inside the pack, then reverse it so the shiny side is facing inwards before reinserting the reversed foil. Play around with the angle of the packet’s lid and the position of the box as needed to secure the best shot.
