DIY mini softbox

Cant afford a lightbox, need one for my little slave flash, but their all a bit small for the job and the bigger ones cost silly money! So, time to get all Blue Peter i think. One box of Mini Rolls, devoured one by one until box is empty. Cut a hole in one side of the box for flash to fit ...

Reflecting on 2012
