Dif­fuser

NPhoto - - The NPhoto Apprentice -

Ross says… On bright days with di­rect sun­light, the con­trast be­tween high­lights and shad­ows can be too ex­treme. Plac­ing a dif­fuser be­tween the sun and the sub­ject will give you more flat­ter­ing light that pro­duces softer shad­ows and gen­tle high­lights, and that re­veals del­i­cate de­tails in the petals, scales and grass. You have to be care­ful not to knock the sub­ject or your tri­pod with the dif­fuser though, es­pe­cially if you have to hold the dif­fuser and take the photo at the same time.
