No one wants to pay for anything anymore – walking in carrying one of these
custom soft boxes may be an accurate reflection of “you get what you pay
What’s the point of cutting up the housing on those Home Depot lights when
you can just remove them by loosening the screw at the base?
i would be concerned about it being a fire hazard. A 300 watt bulb puts
out a lot of heat, Being mounted into styrofoam or cardboard or plastic?
All highly flammable. Held together with tape and A clamps? Probably
not a good idea.
Nice ideas, but they probably won’t last but a couple of days. You’ll have
to keep buying boxes. Fun experiment though.
Do you smell something burning?
Jay. I love your videos, but really. Someone is going to burn their house
300 watts plus plastic and Styrofoam = 90% chance of a fire.
really? 300 Watt in a plastic box? You will burn down the house…
it’s a miracle he didn’t cut his hand

He mentions at the end that the lights are a fun experiment but they aren’t
really that great and will probably start on fire. So you don’t need to
comment about how it will start a fire or make you look unprofessional.
There, I just saved you ten seconds of your life.

Wow great timing with this vid! I’m actually getting ready to buy a wall

with some solid advice.
My studio has 2 white walls and 2 glass walls unfortunately, but this is
useful at times however controlling the light is particularly difficult.
In addition to this, my top tip with the lighting setup is instead of
cutting the clamp light reflector is to pick up a plastic front attachment
(sorry I don’t know the name), they are about 1-inch deep and screw
directly onto a standard light fitting. Here they are available in any
decent hardware store – alternatively if you rip apart an old lampshade you
should find the attachment point on that and it should be safer.
This was really helpful! I’d like to see the lighting with you a little
farther away from the seamless.
