Printed transparency with red gel

Inspired by Airchinapilot's cookie gun and H4NUM4N's tip on using mouse pad as snoot. Now I have an ultra portable snoot and cookie gun in my backpack.


The cookie was made from a laser printed transparency film. Then I added a red gel behind it to add some color.



Picture of the cookie gun in action can be found here.

Close up picture of the cookie gun can be found here.

    That is a 50mm F1.4. Because it was the lightest and smallest lens I have.
