You Had Me at 'Cardboard'

I am a sucker for lighting solutions that involve aluminum foil, cardboard or trashbags. As this baby uses all three, you know it's getting posted.

From Lactose, and Other Unavoidable Evils, (luv that name) the Hobo DIY Softbox. (Luv that name, too.)

I've been making these for as long as I've had my strobes, I was under the impression it was something everybody knew. I find tinfoil has a very slight blue cast, but household diffusion (tissue paper, paper towels, etc) usually add some warmth and help get rid of that blue cast.
