    This is excellent. Thank you.

    Do you have any problems with rigidity after several uses? The bracket on the base of the cone particularly seemed like it needs horizontal support.

    Have you tried white paper or paint instead of foil? I understand these reflect more light.

    Have you tried coloured filters or lights?

    Try Foamboard, ( at least for the cone ) it's solid and comes in white so covers the reflection issue and it's solid. Also various thicknesses. I worked in a school and made some small photo type booths for photos of kids work.

    You can use more sturdy materials for all the other parts my Youtube channel is based on DIY projects using cheap and affordable materials, thats the reason why i used cardboard on purpose and all other materials to reduce the cost as much as possible and increase the effectivity as much as possible :)

    Sorry if I came across as criticising but was meant to be just an alternative. It's a great looking piece of kit ! !

    not at all, suggestions are most welcomed, my aim was to make softbox using cheap materials as i had very less money

    i have been using my softbox for past 2 months for all my youtube DIY and drawing videos and i have occured no problem at all

    Really well done. I shared it on Facebook to get it more views. I'm probably going to make it out of something a little more solid, but the dimensions and details are excellent.

    Thank you soo much :) for checking out my youtube channel it means alot .. I hope to continue to make entertaining DIY projects videos for you guys to enjoy and try out by yourself :)

    Awesome! Thats a great idea, completly made from old stuff. Maybe to combine it with other ibles (like usage of LED strips [with cooling!] and some PWM regulator). Thanks for sharing!

    Yeah i was on a tight budget and i needed some proper lighting to make my youtube videos for shooting drawing timelapse and photography ... This creation of mine helped alot .. Thank you for your compliments :)

    Just what I was looking for. How big of a bulb did you use? Do you use warm or cool for your photography?
