I have been meaning to buy a small softbox for a while now but due to lack of funds and not wanting to spend £90 on something i could make in a few hours i put my hands to the test and put this together. Its not quite finished (i broke the glue gun in a matter of seconds after unwrapping it!) i need to glue the white cotton on the front and finish the neck off but apart from that im happy with the results its giving.
To the left is a Moth Orchid taken with the softbox camera left and stopping the shutter speed up to 250 to block out any daylight.
Below you will find a few more photos from my test session and a few of the softbox its self.
