Yeah. The sheets are probably more just blocking the light rather than diffusing it. In the reflections on the glass, you can see how the light still forms a bright spot. When it's diffused properly, that spot wouldn't be there.

Do you have a diffuser for your flashes? That might also help. You could also try dialing back the intensity of the flashes.

Or you could try using a desk lamp with a tiltable neck and shade as an always on light source. You might get more even light from that instead of the flash.

For the lights, I've been using desk lamps on each sides of the box. I dont have any flashes


This was the last one I just did. Pretty happy with hose this one turned out since you could actually pick up on some of the clarity.
