To light my macro shots I've been hand holding my flash above the subject, that got tiresome, and I ran out of hands, so I made this...

Flash mounted on the hotshoe fires down the tube lined with reflective aluminium tape and into a diffused lightbox at the end. Works pretty well and was worth the 2 redbulls it took to make it :)

    Hey Kris you should get a patent for your design. Having said that, other than knowing I would need two red bull cans you show or the additional items you used and give a brief description of how you assembled this? Pure genius.

    Well I don't know why this picture has suddenly started getting views, or why I've been getting followers just recently, but this account hasn't been used in a long time.

    I have another Flickr account which I do use though Kris Robinson

    Thanks for the views and follows :)
