Hi tchuanye!

Care to share with us where do you get your bounce card for your flash, or what material do you use to make it?

Maybe you can post it up here to share with us?

Thanks a lot, and a very Prosperous New Year, and lots more Macro shots to come! :)

Wow! CY! Getting better and better! :thumbsup:

I really want to take some insects/bugs shots too but can't any insects around my place. Maybe I'll have to macro of still ife. Sigh.... Still life is not so challenging! :(

I'm also polishing my PS skills to get more out of just plain digital pics. I'll post some pics soon hopefully. :)

Sure Josho and George,

I used a hard type of card board. Frankly, dunno where I got it from, I suspect is from my wife's old design stuff. Its white on one side and black on the other, maybe for mounting photos type. Actually, you just need white on one side to do the trick. It lasted awhile and than it started to detoriate. So I cut another with the same shape, pasted 2 ice cream sticks in between to stiffen them. I use the SAF type of rubber band, the bycycle tube type to hold it in place.

My long term plan is to get a white plastic sheet, I think those pp who do plastic modelling uses them, cut it to shape and use it. Here is a pic of my set up:

Hi tchuanye: Thanks for sharing. Perhaps we can go together and get the plastic cardboard, and do together?

I know if we were to go to Bras Basar complex, we should be able to get the materials we want....how does this idea sound to you?

Apologies, but kind of busy this coming days, maybe another time....hope you don;t mind.....

But to make one bounce card is not too difficult, just cut the lenght that is slightly long so that the light can bounce to the subject....15cm is about there.

Material wise, plastic is ideal as it will last, but cardboard will do just fine, as this is what I have been doing from my SLR days and even now.
