I was wondering about the use of the snoot... Some times, shooting macro I find it difficult to prope rly position the strobe in order to have the subje ct correctly lighted, so how can you get the corre ct lighting using just a "spot"???

Hi Yavuz! Thanks for the very exhastive explanation! I will try!!! Do you think it's possible you show us some of your snoot shots here on the website?
Using the focus light, agreed, makes life so much easier!
It\'s interesting reading different experiences... I came out with the idea that the best solution would be to find a snoot with a laser as a pin pointer... does anyone know of its existance?

Well,I was waiting this question:))
I am using different types of snoots ...All are adapted on my Inon Z240 strobes.And on my strobes there are target lights; which is perfect to locate the target...With the snoot ,made from a pipe that's easy,you see where your light is going.Problem is ,with the snoot made from fiber-optics (thank's to subsee from Kerı Wılk) It gives you perfect shape and light but you need a good body for proper location or to many shots and most of the time a little bit ''luck''...Alone: you need to see the target light on the subject...This is what I was trying to say with ''the target light'' Thank you for asking!
PS: I made special light attachment for the fiber-optic snoot ,it works a little bit...
By the way ,I tryed also Retra snoot :- it works good with the target light...

What do you mean with "target light"? :)

My opinion is: Target light is a "must" for snoot !

yeah I've been trying hand held torches in the past but soon aborted... I've heard of people asking their dive buddies to properly position the snoot but that becomes quite complicated...

I have a similar challenge. It's not easy at all especially if you also have on wet lens. My only solution thus far is to pre-position the strobe before actually approaching the subject. I am also able to achieve a snooted effect using a small handheld, narrow beam torch. I am planning to try this out more in Feb and I will share the results k.
