    i think i might be able to shed some light on this subject (hahahah get it?! :D)...

    as far as the speedlite mode you posted...why exactly would you use that? since the light is so concentrated you'd have to use it at 200mm and longer (on a crop body)...it wouldn't bounce well because the beam would be so small.


    as for the strobe modifiers, i honestly think they are a waste of money, when you can just as easily do them yourself. there's tons of DIY light mod stuff on the internet to look through...i wouldn't recommend it for strobe strobes, but for speedlites there's no reason to. I've made a snoot before out of construction paper and it worked great. as far as gobos, barndoors and flags...black construction paper or cardstock. unless you want to spend some money on something sturdier you could easily get away with that.


    this is the site told you about, it's quite quite good (i think you'll be addicted and buy hundreds of new speedlites after browsing it for a while):
