    Hi, I'm not exactly sure of the name for a harsh sun diffuser / translucent fabric. I have a small one on my multi reflector but would like a larger one about the size of the background in this picture at W/Exp
    http://www.warehouseexpress.com/buy-lastolite-tri-flector-2-translucent-panels-o...

    What is the correct terminology for it?
    Would a bedsheet be just as good if I made the pvc poles etc?
    Any websites that explain this as diy job?

    It would be used for weddings etc

    tnx for any help on this

    I think what your looking for may have to be home made or improvised.

    Have a look at this guys web page.....!!!

    They use similar huge diffusers when shooting movies, But they also have a crew on hand to erect or direct them.

    At a wedding its going to prove a tad impractical at the very least.....Sad

    Normally one would position the subjects in the shade, Then maybe add a touch of fill flash, Each location is dealt with as it comes.....Grin

    Whatever have fun.....Wink

    One of these

    and

    One of these

    should do the trick basically.
    They also do a stand and support bars for this system, as well as reflective panels etc.
    I bought a set with silver and white reflective panel for a very reasonable amount.
    All you need to do is send a message via ebay stating your offer, and as long as your offer is reasoble, they should accept it.
    The quality is good, and compared to the California Sunbounce/sunmover system, this is a real bargain.
    Hope this helps.

    Hey guys thanks, they are helpful. They seem to have different names depending on the brand or company that sell them, that was confusing me.

    I'm assuming that I'll get a couple of helpers to hold it at a wedding. I usaully bypass Calumet as they are so dear, but that sounds promising.
    Much Obliged again
