    Cigarette Packet Flash Diffuser

    This is not a good idea. The color in the box diffuser will beintroduced into whatever your subject it. This can also introduce acolor crossover. You can simply use a piece of white paper of even tissue paper anda rubber band or tape around the built-in flash for a better effect. If you are using a flash in the hotshoe of the DSLR camera, simplypoint the flash up and rubber band a piece of white card to the flashwith a the card sticking above the flash by between 2 to 4 inches.Many hotshoe flashes come with a white plastic card for just thisreason.Both of these ideas will work better then a cigarette box.
