DIY Beauty Light Instructions
DIY Beauty Light Instructions
I put the finishing touches on a home-made beauty light this evening. I used a 4 dollar set of salad bowls, chrome spray paint, gloss black spray paint and some gold beading wire to suspened my reflector away from the strobe. Here's how I did it: I bought a "Sterilite 8 Piece Plastic Covered Bowl Set" at WalMart.. I used the big bowl for the the main body and the little one for the reflector. I also bought a cheap can of chrome spray paint. I already had a cheap can of gloss black laying around the house from another photo light project. The last material used was some very thin guage gold hobby wire. It's not real gold, but it is sold that way. It too can be found at Wally World. Materials: 1 bowl set 2 cans of spray paint (chrome and gloss black) 1 spool of hobby wire. Tools: sheetrock knife / razor knife pencil push pin scotch brite scouring pad drop cloth 1. The first thing I did was turn the big bowl upside down and center my SB600 light over the center of the bowl. I traced the outline with my pencil. I did this all by eye and it took two times for me to get my centering right. I just got lucky that the pouring spout was positioned at 6 o'clock. Next time, I will pay attention to that detail. 2. CUTTING OUT THE HOLE FOR THE FLASH. *******BE CAREFUL!!!!!!******* There are two reasons to be careful when doing this step. I won't tell you the first reason, but the second reason is when you start tracing the pencil mark with the tip of your sheetrock knife, DON'T TRY TO CUT THROUGH ALL AT ONCE; if you do, the bowl will break. The plastic is just brittle enough that it will bust a big crack in it. Turn the bowl upside down and apply steady pressure against the knife in order to score the plastic along your pencil line. Do this a few times, BUT DON'T TRY TO CUT THROUGH ALL THE WAY. 3. Flip the bowl over and come at the pencil line with your sheetrock knife from the other side. At this point you should be using the same kind of pressure and you will be meeting the other score and cutting through the plastic. Take your time and flip the bowls a few times to get it right. Eventually, you will get through and your bowl will be in tact with a hole that fits your flash head. 4. See if the flash head fits into the hole. Shave any extra plastic away from the hole in order ot ensure a nice fit. My hole gently scrapes my flash head negating the need for any external mechanism to keep it in place and it is light enough to not stress my head too. 5. Create the reflector bowl. ~ Take the smallest bowl in the set and circumscribe a line about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom of the bowl and use the same scoring method above to cut out the reflector portion of the dish. I did not have a compass. I did the circumscribing free-hand. I am pretty good at doing stuff like this, so you may want to try a compass or some other cicumscribing method. 6. The big bowl had some sort of mould line from when it was made that cicumvents its entirety about a third of the way down from the rim. I used this line as a guide in order to use a push pin to poke a hole through the big plastic bowl in order to feed the hobby wire into and suspend my reflector. I put holes in the 12, 8 and 4 o'clock positions. NOTE: rotate the pin in a way to make the hole a litle bigger than the circumfernce of the pin itself. This will make it easier to get the two threads of wire into it when you assemble the dish. 8. I did the same thing with the small except I poked the three holes a little closer to the top edge of the reflector bowl. 7. Once all of my parts were cut, I "sanded" all all parts witha green plastic scouring pad, i.e., scotch brite pad. I basically was trying to rough up the plastic in a way that would accept paint. In other words, I dulled the plastic bowls on both the convex and concave sides. 8. I washed both bowls with soap and warm water and rinsed with warm water. I towel dried them and let them sit till perfectly dry. 9. I sprayed the inside fo the dish with chrome paint. I did the same with the bottom of the reflector dish. I did this on a drop cloth in a work area of my house. I was trying to get the chrome surfaces to be as shiny as the cap. I was not successful. :-( I sprayed one coat and let it dry. I "sanded" between coats with the scouring pad and washed and dried the bowl inbetween coats too! 4 coats chrome 3 coats black. 10. After everything was dry, I assembled the reflector by cutting 3 pieces of hobby wire and threading each through the pre-punched holes. I pulled each wire tight in order to center it. It took me about an hour and a half to two hours to put this together and I got a fairly decent result when I did a self portrait. I did notice that I had to manually set my white balance on my D90 becuase everything was cast with a silvery blue hue. Once I set it to WB for a flash, my images warmed up a bit.

Errmm. What a place to find. It is on no public road though very visible. You have to approach this church along the Lakenheath viewing area road. The sign that said no entry and that vehicles will be towed away at owners expense were a bit off putting, so I went on some of the nearby fields where a couple of good old boys were doing there farm chores. They looked at each other then at me the townie and said ignore the signs boy just follow the track. As I walked off they shouted don't stop though or tha'll drop a big weight on ya car! I just gave them a thumbs up as I left them chuckling together. This has got to be the weirdest church I have ever been to. As I got out of my car and moved closer I could hear a loud bass drone of some r&b. 'Hmm' I thought 'sounds like its coming from the church' As i got closer to the door I was right,I opened the door and inside is nothing churchy. The whole place has a low false ceiling,it is carpeted throughout and there at the altar end was a large black lady playing a drum kit, as I turned to my right there was a large man doing the hoovering! All the time I was here I was subject to a loud cd playing some 'music'!!! This poor old place certainly isn't like a church any more, there was one brass on the wall, and any remaining trimmings have been painted with thick gold paint. I left here checking that I hadn't taken lsd instead of a paracetamol earlier, but no it was just a headache pil. Weird weird weird, I'm still a bit weirded out by the whole strange experience!!
