This is not the kind of set-up I’d use at a wedding – bit rough and ready for that – but my lampshade speedlite mod was ideal for photographing people at a halloween music event.
It couldn’t really be more simple, all I did was tape tin-foil on the inside of the lampshade and a bit of foil on top, and then attach it to my flash.
It acts as an excellent diffuser, and the key advantage it has over an umbrella is it’s much less likely to get blown over and break.
