Some DIY projects are there to save you money, while others exist solely for the customization and personalization.  This is the latter.

You're not going to save a ton of cash, since products like the FlashBender sell for around $35, but making your own flash modifier is a great way to make sure you get exactly what you want.  The instructions on DIY Photography were provided by photographer Bob Jordan, who explains the process in a series of photographs.

It's a simple enough process that uses a combination of wire mesh, foam, Velcro and a few other essentials to put together a quick and easy flash mod.  With it, you can bend the light to any direction you need or even wrap the modifier to use as a snoot.
