    I had a sheet of White Foamie left so I made something for the heck of it. Something to just soften the forward light with a speedie on the camera. Very simple to make yet works like a charm if you dont have Stands and Umbrellas or Softbox or just want to be portable.

    The last photo was my tester.. untouched except for crop and resize. 1/1 Power on flash. EXIF: ISO 100, 55 mm, f/6.3 and 1/160 sec. She was about 4 - 5 feet away.

    That's pretty cool and the light's definitely better. Lol, looks like your "testor" has a sense of humor and might be thinking something like, "omg, here he goes again..."

    Pretty much since she is my model and Guinna Pig for photo stuff. I think the top flap may need to be a little longer to keep the light loss down a little more. Will find out when I get some more white foamies to work with.

    Needed a new mouse pad today .. so guess what happened to a green foamie..lol. Its nicer having a large mouse pad to roll on.
