    your question very vague . . .

    depending on the subject that you are interested to take and DIY for that purpose.

    Diffuser for macro and portriature are totally different too.

    Set-up subjects at macro distances and then test the diffuser. Check also for reflective subjects and if this diffuser is able to help reduce bright spots (if possible)

    Usually these DIY sites will also show results, right? Just check their setup and modify according your intended usage. Obviously a diffuser meant for macro should be tested in a setup similar to working conditions and not with a group shot
