Step 1: Stuff You Need

some wood,I used 180mm plywood.
a plastic lampshade.
and the flash you want to defuse.
4 small screws
PWOER TOOLS !!
drill, saw and sander.

Step 2: Mark It

mark the outline of the lamp on the plywood,
center the flash inside and mark it too.

Step 3: Drill It

drill the inside of the flash outline, you need a big drill bit
to fit the saw in.

Step 4: Clamp and Saw

clamp the plywood and saw the hole for the flash.
then saw the outline of the lamp.

Step 5: Send It

now you need to send it until it fits in the lamp and the flash fits inside.

Step 6: Drill It Again

now it's time to secure the plywood to the lampshade.

drill 4 holes, 2 in each side and screw in the screws.

Step 7: That's It You Are Done !

    Shadows are softer, but the light falloff seems to be much more of an issue here.  Maybe need a longer exposure for the ambient light?
