Behold: A Light... With a Diffusion Panel.

Strobist reader X-Pose has posted a neat little tutorial showing how he made his DIY PVC light panels. Better yet, he shows how he uses them to light his Christmas card photo, too.

FYI, I am working on a pretty in-depth multimedia project for Strobist that will show many really cool things that can be done with these easy-to-make panels. They are a natural fit for speedlight users.

But you'll definitely want to check out what X-Pose has going on, too.

And while you are at it, a little thinking exercise:

How could he have done the whole thing - diffused light source and "cookied" trees - with just one flash?

Yak about it here.
