    snoots arent used to make a spot light, its to keep light off a certain area and focus on some where specific.

    grids are used for a spot like effect.

    yeah, thats right.

    cover the interior of your snoot with black tape for less of that leaky graduated area around the box.

    weird... flat black? or glossy black? :mamoru:


    Is your flash zoomed to super wide mode or something?

    I mean it's not bad, but mine is throws a tighter square...

    yeah, the snoot is fine. I wouldn't worry about that too much.

    the grid is perfect. It's supposed to be extremely small.

    it's for when you reeeaaaallly want just a teeeny bit of light somewhere.

    definitely not your key light or anything like that.

    I don't use mine too often...

    that's pretty cool for some reason with the clutter on the right side seems like some mechanical extension of the iron man background :o
