I adjusted the exposure by moving the flash tube inside the snoot/cone. Probably a little difficult to do with a complete flashgun though.
I love this shot. It's worked so well. It's nothing like what I'm trying to achieve, but it shows what can be done if you're not afraid of a screwdriver and soldering iron.
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
