Use A Bonbon Box To Create A DIY Lightscoop
Lightsoop is a simple device that bounces your camera-attached strobe off the walls and ceiling when you shoot in a small room.
The logics behind it are very similar to the ones behind the Garry Fong Lightsphere. Only this device attaches to your on camera flash, and uses a mirror to throw the light, where the Fong uses a translucent ball.
Way back we showed how an effect similar to the Lightsphere can be created using a Yogurt cup (free Tsiziki recipe included). synthetic_meat shows how a similar effect to the Lightscoop can be achieved with a bonbon box.
I don’t know what is it with food boxes and on camera flash modifiers, guess snacks make folk wanna shoot. For instructions on the bonbon lightscoop, click the picture below.
