What you’ll need

When beginning a new project, it’s essential to make sure you have all of the necessary materials. Depending on the scope and complexity of your endeavor, you might need anything from basic supplies such as scissors and tape to more specialized items like welding tools or power drills. To ensure everything goes smoothly, create a checklist of items that you’ll need for the job. This could include things like screws for making repairs or paint for creating a custom finish. It’s often useful to consult an expert when determining what type of supplies would be most useful, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the task at hand. While having the right materials can make a project go faster and smoother, inadequate tools can lead to sloppy results and wasted time. Get your ducks in a row by being prepared with all the essentials before beginning any work. It will enable you to stay focused on achieving success rather than scrambling around looking for solutions at the last minute. Take time now to make sure next time you head out to tackle a new challenge that you have all that you’ll need — success is just one check away!

What is a light Diffuser?

A diffuser is a device used to dissolve or dissipate something. In the most common uses we have seen this when people want to put essential oils into the air. Basically , a tool or piece of equipment can break down the concentrated oil and then spread that into the air.

Diffusers come in various shapes, sizes, and colors, making them perfect for home decor and an effective way to aromatize your living spaces. Depending on the type of diffuser you choose, an ultrasonic mist can be spread through the air, releasing tiny water droplets infused with essential oil molecules.

So now that we have that thought in our head about what that specific type of diffuser can do, we can use that image to apply it to lighting. LEDs can sometimes have very direct light, which can create hot spots ( which most people don’t want) So if you use a light diffuser you can spread that light out. So just like the essential oil will be milder, the light will be as well.

Why should you use a light diffuser?

If you are like me and hadn’t heard about a light diffuser before, don’t worry as you aren’t alone. Turns out I had seen them before just didn’t know that was what they are called. You probably saw some big ones when walking through Walmart or Target in the photo area. Light diffusion is needed when you are trying to take direct photos, as they can sometimes show the lights in reflective surfaces, like glasses.

So now you know what diffusers are here is a great video why you should use them:


We have done a wide variety of DIY led projects here and we found this one to be one of our most useful projects. When we used to do image shots for some people I knew who sold products this was one of the first projects that I made. This and a softbox for product shots, I would say they are the two easiest and best DIY projects to do if you are going to start taking pictures at home. By using these products we were really able to get the benefits of using leds to … pardon the pun.. shine through… but of course diffusidly… if that is a word?

So what are you waiting for? Try out our DIY and see how it turns out for you and let us know how it turns out.
