Just a quick post before the weekend. I spent my lunch hour this week in the machine shop. After picking up a beauty dish I needed a way to mount it to my speedlight. Of course, no one really sells such a contraption, so I had to custom make one (joy!). The brass post was custom lathed. The top and bottom curved washers were milled and the mounting bracket was also custom milled. The speedlight mount was borrowed from my Chimera "magic slipper" setup for my softboxes. I just need a PC sync cord and "I'm so there, dude!" I have four beautiful women lined up for a shoot this weekend so this dish better live up to it's name.
