Shot #2 post #2 is particularly stunning.
A very interesting read as well.
Thanks!! I enjoyed that.
Fantastic. Good to see some more DIY stuff on this forum. Thanks for the writeup.
Thanks guys! Be careful tho... egg me on and you may create a monster.
Fantastic! Thanks for posting Bifurcator.
Very interesting and might help out my jewelry photography. It seems as thought the white plastic gave the most even light distribution. It is hard to tell, but it looks like you are using the on camera flash, no?
My problem is mostly white balance. I think that because jewelry is so shiny it flashes light back into the lens throwing everything off. I am getting better though.....I will be cutting some plastic tonight.
You didnt figure out a way to attach to camera did you??
great post Bifurcator. Very nice of you to put so much time and effort in this post. Interesting to see the difference between the different diffusers.
Well stones, and especially diamonds are very tricky for digital I would imagine. http://tesselator.gpmod.com/Images/_Text/TPFBS.txt
Thanks Daan, I wish I would have had a SoftBox to test out too. You get great results!
Thanks all, I appreciate all the appreciation!
Sorry, I missed that last sentence!
I would imagine that if you want hands free operation of this and you're working off a table or stand that just some bailing wire wrapped around the right parts of the tripod and a few well placed holes in the plastic would do the job. If you're not on a pod I guess some tennis racket "grip-tape" around the right part of your lens barrel (don't worry there's no glue or sticky on grip-tape) would allow you to use the wire directly on the camera.
I definitely want to see or hear about the results after you have a go at it!
