    I started reading The Hotshoe Diaries and I decided I need a justin clamp. Originally I was gonna ask where I can find a cheaper one cause the manfrotto one is close to 60 bucks :eek4: but as I was typing this I found something else so I'll just share:

    this grid affect looks like when you set the flash on the telephoto setting.
    i would have a hard time trying to make my pics look good with that look.

    ive been thinking of using one flash more than once (not in the same area) in a multiple exposure.
    my camera makes this easy but i dont have a subject to use it on.

    Yeah, just cover it with black material or something, DONE. I like it cause it holds itself in place, unlike other DIY ringlights I've seen.
