ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I’ve been using a toilet roll as a snoot for a while now. I tell clients “no it’s not a toilet roll, it’s an environmentally friendly re-usable photographic lighting modification device”
Incredible! That’s such a BRILLIANT idea!
BTW… what’s the problem about using aluminium foil and a rubber band, like almost everyone does?
#1: I posted this mainly because liked the word snoot. It doesn’t matter to me what the snoot is made from.
For a more systematic approach to *why* you want a snoot, and how to equip yourself to be an on-the-go, super-hot-shot photojournalist, you want to read strobist.com.
“Snoot” has become a word that I utter almost tourrettically. That and “Hot shoe”. A few alternative snoots I have used are a Pringles can and a number of different paper coffee cups with the bottoms removed. Once I become a good, and subsequently famous, photographer I intend to use my coffee cup snoots as paid ad space.
