Buff WhiteLight X1600: paint inside of snoot silver?
« on: January 09, 2018, 10:14:31 PM »
Just ordered a second studio flash (have a Buff Einstein 640), a Buff WhiteLight X1600. Mainly for the uncoated tube to do UV reflectance macro. In order to control excess spill of harmful UV, I got a snoot, but that loses 3.5 f-stops. Snoots generally are black on the inside. Has anybody painted it silver? or glued aluminum foil on the inside? How much difference does it make? Just in case you wonder, I don't want to paint it white because of the ubiquitous fluorescent UV brighteners in white colors.
5D2 full spectrum, 5DsR, a bunch of Zeiss (some other) primes, for documentary natural history, macro, and micro.
