    Wowzers. That's very close.

    After researching there are many variations.

    Some use wood, some use PVC one is even just paper that you could build for around a dollar. One of the sites suggest a bed sheet which I never would have thought of.

    I hope you guys can come up with your own and share it with us.

    That's amazing! I always wondered how these sorts of pictures were accomplished. Thanks for the tutorial.

    It's funny how my flicker photo page went from 100 view to almost 700 in a couple of days. If it gets past 1000 In the next couple of days, I will buy a subscription.

    Once again, Thanks! I know I am not the only one who did this but I hope you can come up with your own variation and share it with us on DPS.

    Bail - Great tutorial! Thanks also for finding those alternate plans. You inspired me to come up with my own setup.

    I found a plastic file box with translucent sides that I figured would work well. I used the same type of light bulb you used with a utility lamp. I also purchased some cheap white crepe fabric for a total of $2, which I wound up not using. Basically, I lined the interior with some curved poster board, put the light on top, and shot away.

    The setup is shown below, with a couple of examples...







    I'm going to have to tweak the lighting a bit, but overall I think it works well.

    Those guys on Digg need to stop being so anal about stupid wee things - Call it a "UFO flux capacitor" for all I care - it's still a great tip!
    Will be making one in the near future.
