DIY 39-inch Reflective Umbrella w/ Dual Speedlight Bracket (by Allen Mowery)I am not surprised to see the DIY community responds to David’s Hobby last post about the Lastolite Triflash. Reader Allen Mowery came up with a quick and easy way to build a dual flash bracket with a DIY umbrella.

Made from a T-brace and a 1/2″ plastic pipe (+ some odds and ends), Allen presents the Dual Bracket Swivel Mount. The “genius involved” is debatable to quote the tutorial, however for about $8 (umbrella excluded) this is quite a find. (I am not really sure about the DIYing of the umbrella, in this case. folding and unfolding it seems a bit risky with cheapo paint).

It does not carry a trysync hotshoe as the tryflash, but is still a great way to double your flash power (and save some on a swivel).

Read the full tutorial from Allen on DIYP’s flickr group.
