We’ve featured a few DIY Beauty Dishes in the past, from the very cheap to the super cheap, but few of those builds would blend into a professional studio quite as well as this one.
In this video, French photographer, Antony Gomes, and the team at Shootr show us how they built theirs.
Starting with an Ikea mixing bowl, a few bolts, some spray paint and some tools, ultimately resulting with an impressive looking beauty dish with attached speedlight bracket, the video takes us through every step of the process.
Given a total cost of around $80 including the flash bracket and a little bit of manual labour, this is a pretty inexpensive option, and the results speak for themselves.
If you happen to understand French, you can also read all about it over on the Shootr website. If you don’t, there’s always Google Translate.
My only problem now is finding some adult supervision so I can build one!
What do you think? Are DIY Beauty Dishes worth it? Or would you just rather just buy one and save the time and effort of making your own?
