I said it before, and I’ll say it again. The reason why bloggin’ about DIY and Photography makes me a happy person it because I get to tap into a great stream of creativity fro mother great photographers out there.
Take Thomas Schwenger for example. After getting some from the Strobist and DIY community Thomas now gives back one of the lightest and easiest lighting kits for portables strobes. With a single page snoot, a mini GOBO and a filter holder, Thomas wins the DIYP kit of the year award. (Of course, like a being a warded a knighthood, there mostly honor in the title, no dough at all.
The nice thing about this kit is that it will completely fold to fit the slot of the 50mm f/1.8 lens that you have in your bag. It also features a goo free system that will leave your flash spotless after use.
Hope over to Thomas-Schwenger.de to have a look. There is a good chance you will end up with a gobo a snoot and a complete photography kit even before you finish reading the article – this is how easy this kit is.
If you like the idea, please be so kind and give Thomas a shot through his mail form.
