Homemade soft boxes.
Improve your portrait lighting,
stop redeye, stop glare, light behind subject to stop shadows ,very cheap home made kit.
Packet of cable ties ,old tupperware containers,sticky back plastic,
cheap flash unit (couple of pounds on ebay),
cheap Chinese remote trigger (couple of pounds on ebay) or make a long sync lead,
old aluminium sheet (or tin foil and glue ) , some found in your scrap box nuts and bolts,
A way of mounting on to a tripod old bracket or ball mount (or just stand on a table).
Cut aluminium into disc shapes and mount inside container with found nuts and bolts,
cut hole in top lid and mount flash unit (fix with cable ties).
Sticky back plastic on rear of container.
Fit remote trigger and away you go, place boxes wherever you like in front or behind subject,
great flash lighting for no money.
You can cover the boxes with different colour film to alter lighting effect.
