One Green Bottle Setup

Mark2 version of my DIY light table being put to test. Not much different to the one I showed yesterday, except it has a top that fits properly and so leaks less light.

Construction of the top is the same, a see through plastic document wallet taped to an opening cut into the top of the box. Into the wallet can then be inserted sheets of paper, tracing paper used here. In addition, in order to take the weight of the bottle, a sheet of glass or Acrylic/Perspex/Plexiglass can then be placed on top.

Inside the box, which is already white, a sheet of white card placed at a slight angle, rising as it gets further from the flash does help give a more even light on the surface.


The single fixed output Neewer SF-01 mini slave flash is mounted on a Blazzeo SLT-4 radio trigger and a DIY flash stand made from the lid of an instant coffee jar.
