    holy fuck, it's pretty slick. waaaaay tighter than a snoot.

    i put a little slit in the side so i could slide in a gel.

    focuses the light of your flash to a super tight beam. so you can just light exactly what you want, and not the whole room.


    Oh, and nice work! Looks awesome! I crushed my last one in my bag... turned it into a 'diamond gridspot... was never quite the same after that.

    i used model glue, and was a little worried yesterday, because it was pretty soft still, even after drying for a couple of hours.

    got up this morning and the thing is like a brick.

    took $0 to make (stol.... ACQUIRED the straws from Gandolfo's Deli), and maybe 15 minutes to put together. wrapped it in some black gaffer tape to sturdy it up a little bit.
