Got Me Thinkin': Asymmetrical Strip Bank

Pop Photo's 2007 awards for lighting gear are out. Sadly, the Strobist $10 macro studio was left at the altar.

(Was it the build quality? I promise I'll use more tape next time...)

But among the things that did get noticed was the Westcott Bruce Dorn Asymmetrical Strip Bank. The lengthily named strip light is brighter up top than down below, offering automatic feathering for full and 3/4 length portraits.

Not going to run out and buy it, because the missus won't let me I am pretty busy these days. But I sure will be ready to ape the concept next time I shoot a flash through a diffusion panel. Same principle.

Kinda neat, actually.
