DIY sunbounce

No, I am not afraid to do a total rip-off and call it a DIY project 😛 And thus I decided to build myself a california sunbounce. So I got myself a big reflector, cut it up and brought it to a friend to turn into a nice piece of silver/gold cloth with flexible attachments. I could have done this sewing part myself but it just wouldn’t have been this nice.
The metal parts I got at the regular hardware store, the main parts are actually broomsticks, the flash attachment is made from 2 sizes U-profiles. Only thing is, these broomsticks are bigger than the regular once, looks better IMO. Further some parts I still had from a flash extension cord and an old Metz flash.
The sunbounce flash arm has a screw/clamp system so I think the system I used is easier to turn around, it just clicks into a tube that’s on the mid tube. But that’s just my opinion…
Tested and approved at a recent wedding shoot.
