DIY Photolamp – from a Mag-Lite

MaglightAndreas writes “I don’t know how, but late at night I got the idea that I wanted to covert my new 3D cell Mag-Lite to a handy photo-lamp. Next morning I dug out some 250 GSM paper and some adhesive foil I’ve been saving for a worthy project and whipped up a quick ghetto-lamp…It’s not all that powerful, but it’s great for macro shots and softening hard shadows, and it’s very portable. Think of this as a beta version, I’ll likely improve the design a bit once christmas is over. The basic concept is sound, I think there’s potential for more if I sort out a proper parabolic reflector for it.” Thanks Jason! Link.
