A while back I had need to create a cookie for a video shoot. I was looking for cheap solutions, and decided to try and create my own. After several failed attempts using non-ellipsoidal studio lights (even directional lights) I decided I might be able to use a maglite flashlight to perform the necessary function and started to document my attempts via pictures for a future instructable. However, despite my attempts at various light focusing and lengths from the light, I could never get it to focus quite correctly and eventually gave up. I'm not going to bother including instructions since it didn't work, but thought I'd still share the pictures.I would be more tempted to try and finish a cheap alternative, if not for Divet's fantastic ible that was published a couple of days ago and subsequently featured.
