Default Working with a snoot

Well, I constructed a couple of snoots as instructed in at a DIY site and they work GREAT. I'm still playing/experimenting but here are some initial efforts. These are not cleaned-up in any way. They are pretty much OOC except for a small bit of cropping.

Really nice looking shots Gary!

Hate to admit it but I had to Google to find out what a snoot was.

Love to see a shot of what you made.

Hi, JJ. The instructions for making the snoot can be found here http://goo.gl/l7xLr

I actually made three of them with varying light openings -- all for under $3. BTW, I used staples instead of gaffers tape. Here's the set up.

Yeah, me too, Quinton. And, I got the same less-than-mediocre results. THIS one works great, though.

That's sounds like a breakfast item from IHOP.

I had never even heard of a snoot before. Certainly interesting results!
