I’ve been back on my homemade trail mix kick of late, and picked up a container of Sunsweet Plum Amazins* to add to the mix this week.
The chopped-prune raisin-type things are tasty enough, and will add a nice bit of sweetness (plus some fiber and nutrients) to the trail mix, but what I was more interested in the packaging, especially once I peeled off the shrink-wrapped plastic label to reveal this nice, white light-modifier-to-be…
The container is a bit big for the SB700, so I did some tracing…
and cutting…and trimming… and trimming… and trimming… until the lid just barely scrunched around the flash.
Fine so far, but the green lid gives a bit of a green cast to the bottom.
So I applied some black duct tape, which made the fit a bit more snug.
The light spills out everywhere, which is great for some applications, but maybe not so great for others, and so I set up a roasting-pan reflector just to see what would happen.
The constructing shots were made with an iPhone4 and the rest were made with the D7000 & Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G, ISO100, 1/250th, f/8, with the SB700 at 1/4 power. These last two were ISO100, 1/200th, f/8:
