I noticed that my camera light was shining off my table saw so I made some light diffuser to help stop this issue. A simple design and it works well. I user curtain material as the diffuser although I think the diffuser material would be a lot better. I don’t have a camera shop in my town so I still need to order some and try it out.


-- Thank You

I have run a studio and used to have a Camera Shop for many years. There are tons of home-made diffusion materials… have to be careful it does not contain any sort of UV’s…this will throw your color off in a strange way…..if you ever use any sort of material and wash it, be very careful of the detergents. Most of them claim to get whites, whiter…..this is accomplished with a UV additive.

The best diffuser we use is multiple layers of dense toule.
Good idea….

Thanks for the idea. I have the same problem. If you try the commercial diffuser material(s) let us know how they work.

I like your diffuser.

When I built a light tent for close up photography, I bought a good quality flat white sheet at Wallyworld and positioned the lights to shine through it. It worked pretty good.
