Skylight Panel DIY
The last week I made the prototype version 1.0 of a light diffuser that I want to test since a long time: a 110x80cm skylight panel. The Lastolite Skylight Panel is not so cheap and so the decision to make one by myself.
DoItYourself style: with 6 meters of polymer tubes RIG of 25 mm diameter, glue and a shower courtain!!
A little work for cutting and snapping the different parts and here you are a translucent white panel, or almost white, because I noticed after being open that the courtain is designed with little fishes and shells! The test phase was supported by Matteo as assistent and the model Valentina.
The panel called “Skycervo 1.0” works well as a reflector but better as a diffuser: all the shot you can see in this post are made with two canon 430 ex, via Cactus V4, through the panel. A little circular Lastolite silver reflector is used to fill in the shadows on the other side of the model.
I was frightened that the fishes and shells would create shadows but in the end results are harmless.
This push myself to a beauty shot with full dark background, I wanted to extract only Valentina from the blacks.
I’m very proud of my DIY “Skycervo” and the next step would be the use of velcro and alloy tubes.
Have a good light and see you soon!!
