Re: Make you own diffusers

Make several 24" x 24" frames out of 1" x 1" wood. Stretch a piece of inexpensive white cotton bed sheet ove it and tack it with push-pins. This will make nice diffusers, for left, right and top of the subject. Adjust distances of light (or power levels if using Speedlights ) to get model lighting you are looking for.

DRAFTING FILM from a drawing office is better than any cloth. It is smooth and virtually texture free, and can be used even for photographing chrome or mirrors without any "weave" becoming visible.

If you buy DRAFTING FILM by the roll you can use it as a backdrop. Pulled down across a glass-topped table it can be back-illuminated too, with hotspot 'cuddling" around the subject that looks great!
