- scissors or a cutter
- package tape
- white paper
- hot shoe for your flash
- metal angles
- bulb and the correct sockets for the power cable
Here is the full video with all steps
Step 1: The Blueprint
Step 2: Wrap Your Parts
This are the inside parts of your box and they will reflect the light or the flash.
Step 3: Almost Done
Now you need a big part of paper. This paper should be bigger than 80x60cm. You need to bend it over the edges and fix it on the back side with duct tape.
I got mine from the printery. It is a roll with appr. 50m of paper and with a width of 1 meter. If you don´t know how to get such big parts of paper, i recommend you to look for fancy paper. I think it should be available in white.
Step 4: Connection
On the picture you can see the complete softobox, which i attached on my microphone tripod. It has a hot shoe, which i normally use to connect my umbrella (for photograpy as well).
The bulb you can see, is connected to a socket. This is a normal socket, you maybe know from construction areas.
I hope you like my little instructable. It´s not perfect and you need to invent something to connect your flash in front of your box. I connected some metal parts together and the solution looks like one of these flash2softbox things you can buy.
Hope you enjoy it!
