Being a cheapskate and fairly broke (these two are inexplicably related, though I don’t want to go into that just now!), I was very happy to stumble across this site: DIYPhotography.  The first page I came across was a posting from a little while ago on making your own softbox:

This is just great: I love the improvisational and creative elements to this, and the diversity of comments offering all sorts of advice and improvements.  There is something very communitarian about all this that really speaks to me!  I’m excited about photographing a couple of new models soon, but before I do that I’m going to print this out and make myself a softbox or two to go with the umbrellas I already have…
