Thanks for the kind words. That knife is amazing and the lighting is perfect for it as well. Great job.

Yup, rip stop nylon. Some of the knives are quite large and have a mirror finish and larger panels help keep the light even across the surface.

Many thanks for that Ted glad you liked the knife.... (most of my knife output is not mainstream )......I hope as I get more used to strobe the lighting will improve.

Im using an Elinchrom BXRi 500 with a one metre square soft box .

But even with the head set on low.....Im still having to go to f20/ f22

If I want to use F11. what I understand to be a sweeter setting for the lens....I will have to introduce more diffuser panels ro lower the light level
so I can open up the lens.

I will construct some diffuser panels soon.and play with different materials.

Yes all RipStop material gets yellowis after a time, my boxes also after 6 years of light usage. The solution is to buy nylon and resaw them all in the same time.
