    I cobbled together a snoot to use over one of my flashes. Normally you wouldn't use this on your on camera flash like I did in these shots.

    flash set to stun.

    They're epic for what they do, you needs to use silicone or that thick glue stuff. Normal glue does not work for shit.

    I just heard about that trick. I'll see if I can put one together later and see what it does.

    If you want lack of spread try using a snoot that will not leak diffused light?!?!

    Try a black one

    Yeah. We use black ones at work but I thought I'd try a white one to see what kind of results I'd get.

    Thanks. I wish I could take credit for that. My wife picked out all the colors. I just say "yes dear" whenever she asked me if I liked her choice.
