    That looks oh-so-sooo sexy!

    Oh, the pix looks great too, but with the card, the quality of the light is harder - not necessarily a bad thing. Too many LS pictures suffer from a serious lack of 'punch' or what I term 'depth' because the light is so flat.

    the purpose of the diffusor is just to hold the card? you are using glossy paper?

    hmm not bad the light seems to spread out more evenly through to the edges.
