Use a Pringles Can as a Cheap Diffuser for Macro Photos

Flickr user Steve Kushnir came up with this neat idea of building a cheap DIY diffuser using a Pringles can, two layers of paper towels, and some rubber bands. He attached it to his Nikon D5000’s popup flash and uses it for macro photographs of creepy crawlies.

Here are some photos lit with his Pringles diffuser:
