Today my friend Juraj wanted to have a diffuse flash light for taking portraits/close ups - shadowless. Well, I made it for him in 1hour time.
Step 1: Material
Plexiglass 4 mm. White. And an already familiar tool. He wanted that plate have 12 x 12 cm square and holder 6x6cm. OK. No problem.
Step 2: Fine Polishing
Edges should be rounded - delicate photographic fingers...
Step 3: Screw
I took a transparent plexiglass (scrap) 5mm thick and made two pieces with hole 4mm. Take a screw and wing nut and all glued on white squares. So far so good.
Step 4: Look
So. Well done. It is adjustable at any angle, firmly. Finito.
Step 5: Rubber Straps
Flash under. Diffuser / bouncer above. Only one strap. (but you use over 10 pc's if you like, :))
Step 6: Front Look
Yes, this is front look. Angle can be up ...or...down... :)
Step 7: Back Look
The same look as rubber straps step, but, very important, from better angle. :)))
Step 8: Different Transparency
Well, my son Fran wanted this also and he made drawing of new look. And I have to assemble this according his wish. Two long holes for future strap, double hinge, and replaceble diffuser/bouncer from two different materials.
Step 9: Fire Through
Well, now it wait proper strap. Now, he can bounce flash light, direct in another direction, fully close and fire through.... different materials...and so on.
Costs? 1 hour work, plexiglass scrap, screw, nut, glue..good will and 10 cents.
