I decided to make some kind of stripbox for Canon’s speedlight since I don’t have any studio strobe.
So here it is. It has straightforward construction. I took only few photos, but you can see that the shape of this DIY stripbox looks nice. Also it creates slim smooth rimlight on the side if you shoot some kind of dark bottles and glass.
Old box from TV was used as frame. I used Savage translum plastic as diffusion panel. I put tracing paper on inner sides of stripbox.

Very innovative project and good design. How did you attach to strobe?
Thanks charles! I just covered mount of stripbox by tape and that’s it. Mount has same size as head of strobe. Maybe eventually it will be wide, but I’m not going to use it in long period.

Awesome diy skills – i got to try this out for my speedlights before i invest in some rather expensive lasotolite fold away versions.
Thanks! But be careful with thickness of cardboard. It suppose to be thin. otherwise speedlight’s head may damaged by heavy pieces of cardboards.

I think this is really great. But color will be an issue from the warm tone of the cardboard box.
I think you could use white foam core instead of cardboard. Or use black foamcore on the outside and white on the inside.
I think I will give this a try myself.
Thanks for the post.

Thanks very much for sharing it. I don’t have stripe box and I do have speedlight. I will try to share to prepare a stripe box using your idea and post my result on Photigy forum.
Thanks very much.

- Studio Basics Photographer’s Bootcamp (starter course)
Review of Studio Basics Photographer's Bootcamp 4Maybe add more information on tethering for studio setup. Possibly how to set laptop up wired or wireless. Also would like more information on what the difference and benefits of 200ws/400ws/600ws studio strobes are.
iamglphotoJewelry workshop with model + post-production
How to create beauty 5Shooting with models is very different to doing product shots, and combining both can be a whole new challenge on its own. Since I started out with portraits before attempting product photography, I was very thankful Photigy is offering an own course dedicated to this quite special topic. Its content is as professional as the other courses, logically well structured from the very beginning to the final results. Means a bit of theory for choosing the right equipment, conversation with your clients, the preparation with a professional makeup artist, leading to the shooting setup itself, and finally finishing your project in post production. Might be of advantage if you are already familiar in working with PhotoShop. Alex and Kristina are doing a good job, explaining the choice and use of the equipment, and showing what everything affects during the shooting. Mainly focussing on only one setup, but due to their detailled explanations to it, and how to build it up, you can easily conclude what to do for other cases. Although Kristina is talking clearly, I experienced audio issues which made it a bit difficult to understand what she is saying. Probably having issues with her microphone, since her voice is the only one affected of this. Once you are getting used to it, you can follow her words, though it has been quite demanding to me. Later on in the VERY extensive part of retouching, everything is working fine again. Not sure whether it is worth withdrawing one full star of the rating, for this issue might have to be evaluated individually - but since everything else is fine, I really like this one. Very cool for having this course listed in your program, containing much valuable information, explained well and detailled.
NicoThe Power of Liquid: Aqueous photography for professionals
Liquid Photography 5I read some critics focusing on video quality, editing, and such... Not perfect, they say. OK, fine, I agree to some extent. That being said, the CONTENT of this course is absolutely fabulous. All of it! Alex goes to great extent explaining and guiding through the whole process. The bottom line is that you can't fail. Just a little bit of practicing, and voila, you're up and rolling creating impressive product shots. Also, Genia beats language barrier and demonstrates quite efficiently aspects of the post-production process. Great course!
