Sure. Built a frame the size of a twin bed out of PVC and used a white fitted sheet (I thought the fitted corners would held it in place). I used it once, then dismantled it. It was WAY too large and caught too much wind to be managable (and I don't have access to a team of assistants for every shoot). I cut the PVD down to 72x48 and use a much lighter nylon material. I now have three diffusion panels and have found that I can clamp them together like building a house of cards and position the model under the top panel - which doesn't require any assistants (but still requires a calm day)

Yep, sure have. I had direct sunlight coming through some windows and wanted softer light...so I had two friends hold a bed sheet. Worked like a charm.

I haven't but I was with my kids at Wally World while they were getting some craft supplies this weekend. The fabric department was adjacent and I noticed they had several leftover bolts of semi-sheer white fabric in various sizes that looked perfect for scrim material. Each leftover bolt was on sale for $1.00 Yep, 100 pennies, that's no typo. Might be a MORE cost effective solution than bedsheets which I think are more than $1.00. Hope that helps.

Cheers,
LSC
