diy softbox in pieces

diy softbox in pieces

This is a collapsible DIY softbox I made. It folds on to 40"x24", can hold one or two flashes, and mounts horizontally and vertically. The E and C pieces of foam core are to prevent spill out the back of the flash. For more, check my blog: eurodiego.blogspot.com/2010/05/diy-collapsible-softbox.html

DIY Ring Flash

DIY Ring Flash

The initial results are pretty good I think since it cost me under $1. The casing was fashioned from a Cornflakes box and the inside lined with aluminium foil which was stuck down with double sided 4" tape/sheet , all held together with you guessed it, duct tape. Thanks to a few of the flickr members for posting some ideas on this little project, I’m sure it’s gonna come in handy for me soon.
