->> Gaff tape paper to the lens hood.

Also, remove the UV filter and use gaff tape to compress and mask the lower two ropes that you are trying to shoot around.

->> That Flex Lens Shade looks great. I use my Flash Bender light modifier with rubber bands because the velcro strap won't make it all the way around all lenses.

->> Hey Bryan;

Thanks for your order, I shipped last night. Thanks for everyone's help too.

The difference between gaffers tape and Flex Lens Shade is that the Flex Lens Shade is bendable and holds shape. Gaffers tape keeps needing adjustment and falls at the wrong moment. That is why I invented the Flex Lens Shade.

Everyone that has used it swears by it. Not only for boxing but for outdoor shooting to block sun light, in the studio to block lighting or even to block rain as Gene Blevins has shown us at Cape Canavral.

B&H is selling them now too.

Thanks Again All!
Tom
