In last weeks Amateur Photographer (14th March 2009) there was a article on DIY flash customisation. There was instructions on how to build a simple flash grid; however the really hard part was finding black straws. After a quick trip to Ikea, I had some straws which were only half black.
This is the test photo, there’s an version taken without the flash grid the jump.
This is same set up as above, it’s not quite the same shoot as I did not get the tripod out for the camera.
This is the grid that I built. It’s not pretty, but it does the job. I’m now wondering what other flash extras that I can make.
Also in writing this blog post I’ve discovered that there is a difference between a flash grid and a flash snoot.
