Hey guys and gals I’m making a couple of flash diffusers and using 3mm frosted perspex, question is should I position the frosted side or the shiny side towards the flash.

I’d go shiny side out. If you look at the attached flash diffuser, the textured side is toward the bulb. This will give the light coming from the bulb not scatter and a larger light.

now, given the size and pattern of the material you are using that may be negligible to no difference, but that is how I would start.

Appreciate that thank you.
