I wanted to make myself a beauty dish a long time ago now, but always struggled with finding the right dome… One day I stumbled upon a nice dome, really cheap too (9€)!
So I was determined to make a beauty dish out of it. Problem 1: I like strudy brackets, not the ones I put my SB600 on and then the bracket lets go of the strobe…( remember?)
An exhaustive search on Ebay, several purchases later I found a good contender : Here. I found this bracket easy to modify to whatever I want to. It’s very sturdy and my new SB900 fits nicely on it!
Once the bracket was decided I mounted a nice big dome on it. Problem was (still is) the dome is too deep to get a nice beauty-dish effect… it acts more like a snoot. So I switched again to add some diffuse cloths in the dome and got a pretty good result. This with a minimum of cost. It’s quick and dirty but works as intended!
Now next step is to get me the same dome, another bracket and make a modification to the dome to finally get my beauty dish 🙂
oh yeah, I almost forgot the result 🙂
