    it works really well. really soft lighting for headshots and 1/2-3/4 body shots. first image is to show how the light is uniform across the box. Please excuse my test shots im no model and shooting these pictures handheld, tripod is in the car and im lazy. all for 50 bucks shipped. came with a grid, extra recessed border, and circle mask.


    here you guys go.

    I was thinking of making one from a link I found.

    http://www.subdoc.com/marc/diy/kitebox/

    I like it cause it looks portable...I'm gonna make it tomorrow but if it doesnt work as well as I want it to I might check that amvona one out.
