Home-made Softbox 1 (HSB-1)

This is the kind of thing you have to do when you want to start using some off-camera flash and your budget for photography is zero. The wife wanted to recycle this old laundry basket but I had different plans. Lined it with a space age material called 'aluminum foil', and a 22" diffuser on the front from a 5 in 1 reflector set. That's my trusty FL-36 firing into the HSB-1, cheap ebay trigger attached and fully engaged. Now to find me some models...heeeeyyyy kiiiiiidddss...

No worries, though, after a few sales on ebay, light stands and umbrellas are on the way. Fortunately I haven't resorted to selling the children yet, but I hear they fetch a nice price on ebay...
