JAKE HICKS, DPREVIEW:
There is an almost endless supply of lighting modifiers available on the market right now—some are cheap, and some of the better ones are certainly a lot more expensive. But does cost directly relate to quality?
Well, a lot of the times yes it does, especially if you're referring to build quality. In general, the more you spend, the better-made and more durable the modifier will be. But does that extra money you spend mean you're getting a better lighting modifier overall? I would have to say no; in fact, for less than £15/$20 you can get some stunningly beautiful light from a homemade lighting modifier.
Read on to see examples of the stupidly cheap DIY lighting modifiers I'm referring too.
