By putting a sheet of paper in front of the flash not only diffuses it, but in fact transforming it into a huge light source, as compared to the 2"x3" flash head - you now have something like 3ftx5ft!! So this gives a more "wrap around" kinda lighting to your subject which prevents harsh shadows as well as evenly lighting it up.

Hope this helps.

Yessir! and thanks
Jesus has risen and lives!
