Nice Pics, the exposure and lighting are excellent, do you have a set of studio lights or is that simply a Sunpak or other make?

Thanks!
No, I don't have any studio lights.
It's just a cheap flash with a brand name called Tumax (model DA880z) I bought from Hong Kong.
But I added a self made "bounce card" to take those pics.

Here is the 2 self made bounce cards:


I first wrap around the flash with some self-sticking sticky pad you can find in fabric store. I put the soft side on the flash.


The stick the hard side on the boards.


The silver one is one of those bubble insulated protective media envelope you can find in gift wrap store. I tested it once and it turns out very nice with a 45 degree bounce.
But it is too large to carry out with me so I only use that at home.


The white one is those flexible foam craft board they use in school for kids to make stuff of.
They look like some pearl color with some shinny stuff on it if you look closer.
You can find it on some craft or farbic store or in Walmart.
The silver one actually works better but this white one I can put inside my camera bag and take it out with me.

Some cool shots and that reflector design (esp the use of velcro) is a really good design.

Cheers
