What is a flash diffuser?

Flash diffusers are devices that filter light from the source to better distribute over an area and create a softer image.  

When you take a light and add a softbox, you are making the light a larger source and generating softer edges since the light will now wrap around the subject.  The material on the front of the softbox is the diffusion material, and causes the light to distribute more evenly.  Umbrellas are also flash diffusers that work the same way, but tend to blow over very easily when used outside.

The best flash diffusers will distribute very evenly and deal with the "hot spot" that a traditional strobe creates towards the middle.  This is why all LumiQuest softboxes have an additional thicker patch in the center.

Mexico City is massive — there are more people in Ciudad De Mexico then New York City. The city is stunning and feels both ancient and hyper modern at the exact same time. With such a vibrant urban environment comes a wonderful selection of interesting and dynamic individuals to document.
