Something to try..
These tree pics were taken with a Pentax WPi , not a particularly good camera and not with a particularly good macro setting either.
The intention was to show the difference between no flash, full flash and diffused flash.
No flash

full flash
diff flash
The diffuser is made from a piece of soft drink bottle, sanded down and held in place with a piece of Blue Tack.

This is a good tip, Franco.

For those of us with pop-up flashes, a strategically-cut ping pong ball makes a great diffuser.
