4

Similar to 3 but without the scoop-like frame in the reflector. It was made to this shape by folding thin white cloth to this shape and sealing the edges up with a stapler. A piece of tin foil has been added to the inside to enhance forward bouncing. Easy handling is possible as there is no supporting framework inside the reflector.

Similar to 2 but this time, the flash head is placed at a horizontal position with flash from the hole directly falling on the object being shot in a converged and delineatedmanner creating partial lightingeffect.

A good idea. To start with, 1's effect could be seen in the following pictures:

The barbet was very far away and the extension tube helped converge the light and make the image more saturated.
