    This really isn't meant for the just for fun forum :)

    Those that use a very small speedlight such as a Nissin i40 or a Godox TT350 (I have both) will have problems getting any sort of diffusion for the flashes except the standard one it comes with. However when I was in the haberdashery department in John Lewis with my wife on Friday, I noticed bra cups for swimwear
    :whistle3:

    Ok the first picture is front view (it could be straighter on the flash), second is side view, and last is back view (again need to adjust better than this on the flash) And yes in three, that's a bra strap retainer holding it on.....
    I am actually using one of these flashes on cam at Comic con 2018 in may, (no other option) for portraits. Haven't tested it that much, but it does give a nice diffuse light. This is B cup, but going to to try out larger sizes to see if diffusion is any better.

    I can't believe I just posted this lol.

    btw my daughters (24 and 20)who are coming to Comic con are already objecting about the flash being taken on the day with this diffuser

    Ha ha brilliant. You'll have photographers coming up to you asking where to get your special brand of diffuser!

    Great idea Brian. You can line the inside back wall with some foil paper to help reflect some more of the light forward.

    Hi Brian
    I just realised that the front of your reflector is open. Please ignore my advice above!

    Thanks, I am going to try out a DD size cup to see if it spreads the light over a wider area, currently only on a B cup :D

    Your title gave a good hint of your approach, but I was surprised at how suitable it looks.
    If you hadn't told your daughters the source of your new diffuser I'm sure there would be no complaints at all.
