Dunno havent try it out.Originally Posted by jlim76
Just curious what is the intention of this DIY project?
You trying to:
a) diffuse the light?
b) create a larger light source?
c) focus the light for (hopefully) better range?
To diffuse light and make it 'softer', generally you're talking about making a big light source. Things like softbox, bounce card, etc.
What you're making looks like the shaped cone of a loudhailer.
better range looks possible, but diffused light doesn't seem to be part of the plan.
Anyway, good job for trying out this DIY project! I'm sure it will still come in useful somehow
You just need to put good DIY diffusing materials at the front. How about the Daiso chopping board + foam combo?
will keep trying , bythe way thx
Me definitely no macro expert, but I think from the picture below, I do have to agree with spree86 about the harsh shadows.
Though it's mainly referring to studio strobes, the concept of softer light from a larger source at close proximity to the subject probably applies quite appropriately.
