Printable Strobe Modifier
Okay, sign me up in support of this one. I've long been a fan of the strobe bouncers made the old fashioned way—you know, a piece of white paper somehow stuck to the top of a strobe to diffuse and soften the light output. I cut mine out of the white cardboard inserts from 4x5 film boxes, and I could never figure out why people paid good money to do what a blank sheet of paper could do. Bridging the technology gap, we now have Pieroway. They print logo-branded flash bouncers. I'm guessing the logos are so you don't feel like a hack using a plain old piece of paper. Still, the point is good: paper does this job as well as any expensive modifier, in my humble opinion. And this free download offers a great template for putting paper to perfect use.
