Hi, we are really new at photography ...how can we make a diffuser?
From the photo, just take the plate..cut abit? Then how we fix it to the lens?
We only have the kit lens 17-55mm which I read, have macro capability...will the lens suffice for this trip?

Hi dawngel, there are alot of threads in here where you can search on DIY diffusers. Commonly DIYs are drinking Meiji Milk (The big Plastic bottle that comes wif a handle??), cut to a desired height as tall or taller by abit of your flash; punch a single hole on each side and use an elastic band which will secure the diffuser to your lens. Think - Catapult. ;p

17-55 has macro capabilities but has limitations. Suggest you get a raynox for macro - cheap and good. Then u can decide if you wnt to invest in a proper macro lens. Cheers! ;)
