A "Home Depot" Snoot...
Posted 05 December 2011 - 09:59 PM
Over the last little while I've been looking at macro images where the shooter used a snoot and then came across an article that explained how to make one. So, after a quick trip to the local Home Depot, I'm in the snoot business! The biggest reason I decided to try a snoot was to eliminate the often busy and distracting backgrounds from macro images. Here are some of my recent attempts.

Here's a photo of the snoot on one of my DS-160's. It is a two-part snoot - one 3"to 2" rubber plumbing adapter and a Rigid Wet/Dry shop vac fitting (can't remember the name of the part). The Rigid fitting fits perfectly into the 2" opening on the plumbing adapter and the 3" part of that fits perfectly over the front of a DS-160. Easiest, and cheapest, thing I've ever seen for u/w photography!
Hope this helps...

Nothing done to the inside - just black plastic. I was prepared to modify the inside to make it more reflective, but it doesn't appear to be necessary - to my eye anyway.
