I finally got around to building a shoot through macro stand. It's primary use will be for translucent subjects like snow flakes, crystals, etc. However, I imagine I will find other uses for it, too. It cost me $30 in materials for the adjustable closet racks and I used scrap lumber I had around. I put two sets of shelf brackets on it so that I can use the lower one to mount materials to diffuse the light, add color, etc., or if I want to move the light source up I can. I built it tall because I'm tall, so I don't have to bend or stoop to use it. Now I just need to test it out!
