As was recently discussed in another topic, baking tray paper seems to make a rather good diffusion paper. I haven't test it myself, I haven't been able to find any.

By depth of film do you deep field, or shallow?


Best Regards. :)

Good question.

Use some Kinoflo's. If you have an inverter to hook up to a car battery, you can get a pretty nice soft light with a healthy exposure level.
