New Lighting Contraption

Another Self-Portrait
My New Contraption
In last Saturday's post I explained how I double-diffused my flash with a homemade soft box and shoot-through umbrella. Today I had a new idea for my soft box - I decided to fire it into a reflective umbrella(photograph to the right). The effect is similar to what you might get from a beauty dish and when I stood directly in front of it I achieved the catch-lights you would get from using a ring flash(above photo). I really like the contrasty, edgy light I get from this set-up.

Here is a prettier picture using the new contraption.

Cool modifier. The photo of Laura is really great.
