    I cobbled together a snoot to use over one of my flashes. Normally you wouldn't use this on your on- camera flash like I did in these shots. I plan on using it off-camera for some interesting portraits and interior work.

    flash set to stun.

    Fun foam I bought at an arts and craft store along with some velcro to hold it together.

    I've also added velcro to my flash head to hold it in place.

    Ive made this with cardboard before. Looks like yours came out very nicely.

    This are GREAT to use when using an off camera flash.

    I also use cardboard from a cerial box and if you want a tighter spot pack it with drinking straws for a honeycomb snoot.

    I also use a piece of foam like that for a snoot. I had it left over when I built a flash deflector.

    Adding a 'honeycomb' would constrain the beam even further.

    You and I must think alike. I was also building a flash deflector with the other piece of foam.
