ideas for diy reflector


New Member
Gooday! Right now I own an umbrella reflector, that only has placement for a vertical bulb. I have a 1000w magnetic ballast.
Does anyone have an idea how I could modify it to be able to place my light horizontal?

I've seen umbrella reflectors with holes in the side and the bulb placed horizontal. But I don't really know how there mounted.

Some things I know I need to consider....
Wires need to be isolated from direct light.
Distance from bulb to reflector? How far should it be?

Basically I'm on a budget and I can't afford a new $100 reflector. Does anyone have any clue what I could do? Or is at least familiar with these type reflectors?

I can find pictures and post them if anyone needs.

Thanks to anyone who can help lol.
