I was quite taken with those trick Elinchrom deep octaboxes with the swappable reflector dishes for producing a crisp but even light with the diffusers removed. However all my lights have Bowens S fitments. I could buy a converter and mount the deep octa on my S fit lights however I thought I’d try a DIY version first. So behold the Pie Dish. My 1.2 metre white octa with a take-away dish suspended on four pipe-cleaners in front of the flash bulb. The pipe cleaners are inserted into four of the strut loops on the octabox.
