Membuat DIY Beauty Dish

Make a DIY Beauty Dish

Usually in photos in the studio there is something called a beauty dish. Its function is as a light reflector so that the light produced by the flashlight is more directed and the photo results are more dramatic. You can make it yourself at home, especially for those of you who like taking photos with flashlight.
