p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Rusty, but jumpers are awesome.


Hey FMers,

I have been barely shooting in the last 8-9months. But with the warm weather in Aus, I have finally found the bug again.

In my lay-off, I somehow managed to crush my half decent homemade diffuser. Being lazy and not quite into it, I was just using a cheap plastic diffuser and some tissues, ok, but not good.

See pic result (fairly heavy crop):


Very cutle little dude, but light is a bit harsh.

Was thinking of ways to get effective diffusion that wouldn't result in a large, lumpy and crushable object in my camera bag. Stumbled upon a flexible and mouldable reflector.
See new set-up (note the head torch I wrapped around the flash. This makes viewing the subject in low light MUCH easier)




Only played with it a few times so far. Seems like it might be ok, but not near as good as some of your softbox style home jobbies. Will fiddle and see if I can improve.

anyway, some results.
Firstly, a shot of the hinge area of my leatherman multi-tool.


Jumper.



Any thoughts/suggestions on improvement would be greatly appreciated, also, my pics are always up for critique of any sort.
Thanks guys,

Tim.

Wow, I'm impressed that you were able to find a rare breed of something made in the USA. Looks like you'll get back in the groove pretty quickly, welcome back!

Thanks Michael, the last is my fav too. I need to get out there and find something shiny like a ladybird to test it properly.

Cheers Douglas, it is even harder to find something made in Australia. Seems to be cheaper to mine the ore here, ship it to china, then ship the product back

Thanks Paul, I am moving house in a week. Will be tricky to find the time to shoot for a while.
