SHARE has some ideas to help you add to your photography accessories for your flash.  If you can print and/or fold, you can create your own lens hood, gel holder and light modifiers similar to Sto- fen or Lumiquest. You can create your own gels by printing on transparency sheets.  With a little time and creativity you can make items similar to those offered commercially for a fraction of the cost.  Along the way you may think of a better way to get the final results you want to achieve using your flash or speed lights.
