DIFFUSE YOUR FLASH
Light modifiers are less plentiful for built-in flashes, but there are some handy options available Diffusion domes are common for flashguns, but these can be difficult to find for pop-up variants. Try a universal internal flash ‘softbox’, which can be found inexpensively online or alternatively, craft one yourself from a piece of white plastic or semi-translucent material.
