Im broke and but I need to use my flash for night time shoots. I hate the on camera flash, it makes everything look flat etc. etc. But I want to know if anyone has tried re-directing the on camera flash light. I'm thinking of putting the tube from a toilet paper roll over the flash to direct the light up instead of forward.

Any other ideas?

Not sure if this is exactly what you're after in terms of ideas cause it does cost a bit, but it's interesting

the toilet roll might work better

cause you will have more control over the direction of the flash.
