    Made it for less than ten bucks. Its 15" which i think is perfect for up to two person portraits

    Didnt have a human subject...

    and some speed straps, but i know you dont need a pic of those. Its some rubber and Industrial velcro, so i never have to put velcro residue on my flashes.

    Is there an emoticon on OT for when an idea goes flying over someones head? :rofl:

    Don't worry, I'm just a bit over the whole "strobist" thing been thrown around, people are losing their shit about stuff that was around 20+ years ago.

    Whilst it's cool it's become more aware because of this one website, I still don't get why this is a "strobist" beauty dish instead of "DIY" one :wiggle:
