    I need to make me one of these once I get my SB600.

    PS - I love that with all the technology and the many thousands of dollars invested in some of these setups, many good photogs have $2 diffusers/bouncers made out of fucking paper mache on their rigs. Good times. :big grin:

    somebody recently posted a link to a guy that made his own diffusers... made it out of like $5 worth of material. I believe the link was posted in this forum...

    why do you want to?

    tons of pressure, you needs tons of equipment and backup equipment, need to konw how to MASTER all forms of lighting, need to capture a huge dyncamic range in EVERY image, you won't make much if any money upfront for a while, competiting at the bottom with thousands of others in the same boat with no way to distinguish yourself.

    And then the bridezillas. Theres better markets for making money
