Flash Photography Ghetto Style

I don't know what I was thinking going to a Camera club meeting for indoor still life photography practice without my external flash. My tripod was in my other vehicle,so it made some of my shots a challange. For this shot a wide aperature just wasn't enough to stop motion blur. The on camera flash is so harsh in close ups,so I wrapped a folded paper napkin around the camera flash as a make do diffuser,there for I call this photography ghetto style.

LOL I love your title! ;)
Hey can you pretty please remind me how to change the text "comments" to say something (like you have yours set to say Garden Notes)
I couldn't remember how to do it.
