LitePipe P, SaberStrip and StrobiStrip are all tube like strip light modifiers that you can buy. Or if you are on a budget with your photography you can build your own DIY strip light modifier that looks bigger, better and cooler than any Star Wars light saber. These easy to build speed light strip modifiers are awesome for shooting portraits both in studio and on location.
For less than $25.00 in materials, you can build this DIY strip light modifier and you can mount it vertically or horizontally and the adjustable speedlight umbrella holder let’s you set up in just about any angle or position you want to and you can access the controls of your speedlight – without having to remove it from the unit. And since it’s lightweight – it will easily work on compact light stands without wobbling. The tube is also wind resistant meaning it’s not going to blow around outside like a big softbox would.
Speedlite Light modifiers come in all shapes and sizes and indeed the cooler they are the more they tend to cost. As I have shown you in the past – the only thing that makes one modifier better than another is how well it solves a problem in any given situation. If you understand light and the Inverse Square Law you can work with inexpensive modifiers and do the same things that the more expensive ones do.
