I have looked at:

Super Walmart
Target
Holiday
Paper Capers
Party America

I know there has to be a gas station or some restaurant that uses black drinking straws.

Anyone know where I can find some locally?

I have been looking for a while also. Ive looked in all the gas stations between here and Ashland as well as some other places. Im sure as soon as you order them off the net, youll find a place that has them the next day :)

With this being the political season, you could use a campaign size. Or just use white ones, I've seen some comparisons, not that much different I thought.

you MIGHT? have to hit Panera? Why would you NOT go there? lol

Dreaming of bread...

ANYWAY, I have not heard if there is a difference in using white and black straws. Im sure there is light wise, but not much. I just want black case it almost looks professional :)

I am pretty sure that Blackwoods uses black straws. I'll be in the cities this weekend though, so if we go to Panera I will grab a few extra straws. :-)
admin
Cool, I will likely be heading down that way. I found a Nikon SB-24 in awesome shape for $30. A friggin steal.
admin
In the cities you found it? That is a good deal!
admin
Yeah in the cities. That is about $70 less than ebay.

That's a lot of time at Blackwoods, Josh. ;-) It is one of my favorite restaurants, but I don't get there often enough.

Black straws are a DIY Photographer's friend!
You can make a great gridspot for your flash...
And you can drink tea with it, making you look like a bad ass.
:)
OK, thats all i know. Maybe he has other ideas for them?

tea! black straw! this is a whole new world! If shawn has other idea's i'm sure it has something to do with his most recent literary find, the Kama Sutra.

Ha ha, Nope I am building a gridspot for my speedlights.

are you talking about large black straws or the small black ones for coffee?
admin
Lrge Black Straws. I bought a pack of Cocktail straws, they are just too small.
I think the white ones would work, But I have my mind set on Black Straws, because they are hard to find and I will feel more fulfilled when the project is completed. LOL

cut, glue, spraypaint. Besides, you are going to want a matte finish on them, anyway for max effect.
admin
I actually was thinking of doing that. Brian, you just convinced me. LOL
This will be my project for tomorrow night.
Thanks!
