Want Pointers Trying IKEA Melodi Lamp Shade Experiment.


Here a lot
Hi, Saw a Youtube video on useing a Foba Acryl Cone but at approx $500 I found again on Youtube someone useing an IKEA Melodi Lamp Shade Approx $15 so gave it a go.
The setup image is with continuous lights but I also tried Speedlights.
First flower image is Continuous Light
Second and third images used speedlights.
Thankyou, Russ.

Hi, Yes double diffusion but the caveat with the continuous lights (just two) is a very slow shutter speed, yes I can increase ISO along with a larger apeture but still very slow, waiting arrival of better/stronger LED light bulbs.
Thankyou for the reply. Russ


Always on
Definitely a great method to highlight just the flowers Russ. Well done. I love to do a bit of floral photography and this seems to work well.

I've put the other 3 images in your post full size for you.

The 2nd one is very effective.
