Has anyone made or retro-fitted barndoors to their hot lights or Home Depot lights? They get horribly hot, but its certainly possible!

My Lowel-V hot lights have "barn doors"(whatever!) on them BUT they don't have the needed full range of movement. They're more like varible REFLECTORS! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

Please post some pics of your rigs to give the rest of us some ideas! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

The easiest thing to do is to use Blackwrap, it's a heavyduty black aluminum foil type product made for the entertaiment indusrty.

They're not barndoors, but while we are on the subject of accessories for Home Depot lights let me chime in. I use an umbrella setup I got from some instructions on the web: Home Depot Light Umbrella Brackets

Having the umbrellas diffuses the light and greatly reduces the heat thrown at the model.
