Re: Photographing long items ...even spread of light

I use 240 cm high bounce boxes with one strobe to get an even light distribution for tall items.

Depending on where you place the strobe you have some control over the direction of the light - or can get a very even distribution.
The difference to simple V-flats is the sloping top- and bottom closure, which helps to even out the light.
The strobes are barebulb without reflectors or modelling light and placed somewhat inside the box.

My boxes are DIY from white corrugated cardboard. The rear panel is 40 cm wide and the sides 60cm. The front opening is 60 cm and can be made narrower. I don’t use diffusion fabric (unless I need to hide the reflection of the strobe in shiny items).
