    speedlight barndoors

    I was looking for speedlight barndoors and came across these from B&H a couple weeks ago SP Studio Systems 4 Leaf Barndoor Set for SP72 SPBARN72 B&H. Relatively inexpensive ($14), easy on/off, and they work very well. I've used them with my SB700s, but I'm pretty sure they'll fit SB-28s, SB800s, SB600s, etc. Not sure about SB900s though..

    I'm not affiliated with B&H or the manufacturer, just a heads up if anyone is looking.

    Photography is at its core an attempt to represent the reality of light in a media that canít faithfully reproduce it.

    Yes sir, and I have some stuff fabbed up with velcro too. It works OK for what it is.

    The gaffer tape is priceless for the gels on the my 285s and monolight

    No way in hell.

    There was a Strobist article on these quite a while back. I use the crap out of mine. They're unbeatable for the price. Use 'em on my 580EX II and 430 EX II's.
