Ghetto Diffuser

I was looking for a quick-and-dirty way to diffuse the on-camera flash for a picture I was taking.

Ever the MacGuyveresque photographer, it struck me as I looked at the bedroom floor: socks.

White gym socks.

I pulled one down over the flash head, and damned if it didn't work beautifully. It does impede the autofocus assist flashes somewhat, mind you, but it sure does make beautifully diffuse final images.
