About this book
Shattering the notion that location lighting has to be difficult, inconvenient, or compromised in its quality, this resource provides guidance on how to create unique and personalized images shot in parks, on city streets, at sports arenas, in workplaces, or in a clientÕs home. With an overview of equipment and a discussion on the essential tools for a shoot, this guide walks photographers through the creation of dozens of location imagesÑfrom casual headshots to full-length, formally posed portraits. With strategies for meeting lighting challenges found outside of the studioÑfrom evaluating existing light to modifying or supplementing light as neededÑthis book will help photographers shoot confidently by developing a plan for creating professional-quality location portraits.

    I actually love the way it works

    4/5 myke yeager - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio 36" 16 Rods Octagon Softbox for Alien Bee Monolight Strobe Studio (Electronics) I actually love the way it works! Yes I did wanna scream and yell putting it together. The product was well worth the pain I really must say.When I got it I was looking at the higher priced Wescott but went with this one once I realized all I was really losing was an inch in side.I hear a'lot about the velcro not meeting on the back YES this is true but once you get it together you can get them to match up.Don't let the CowboyStudio name fool you they actually did hit it out the park on this unit.I would give it a 5 start rating but the pain and yelling scaring my dog while putting it together lost that one star for me. I used it on 8 shoots so far in the last week.If your'e new to Big modifiers this one is best used from 6-8 feet with center baffle and 4-6 feet with the outer cover on., November 13, 2015

    Don't waste your money on this octabox!

    1/5 Jackson A. Niday (Colorado Springs, CO United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio 36" 16 Rods Octagon Softbox with Grid for Alien Bee Monolight Strobe Studio (Electronics) Very poorly made. The materials are much lighter duty than similar boxes that I own from other manufacturers. Moreover, when the box is assembled, the Velcro closures at the speed ring don't meet. There's space between the slits leaving light leaks through the back of the box. Would not purchase again. Highly recommend anyone considering this to purchase a higher quality modifier if you can possibly afford it., July 8, 2015

    A pretty good deal for a large-ish diffuser! You'll definitely need to get your Zen on to put it together!

    Not an Octagon, but a Hexadecagon!I was looking for a big diffuser and lept upon this one because it seemed like a good deal. And it's actually pretty good. Not too expensive, not too small. But it's probably not going to be making too many trips with me. The ONLY problem that I have with it (which is more indicative of my inexperience, than the product itself) is: once it's put together, you're not going to want to break it down for storage or transport. Again, not a flaw of the product, but my expectations.The attached shot is with the diffuser on a StudioPro SDX400, cranked down to 1.6. From the front of the diffuser to the model is approx. 10 feet, shot (quick and dirty) with an 11-16 mm lens from 2-3 feet away. I like that this allows me to get close without casting a great, harsh shadow on my subject. Not what I'd do every time, but I just wanted to do a quick experiment.I saw from the photos that I'd have to assemble it myself, but... 4/5 Patrick D.

    My Favorite New Toy!!!

    Ordered this three times, yes three times. First two times, It shipped from amazon and it was beat to hell. I had to return it twice. So here's some advice, Order it from Fododiox! When it arrived, it was in a giant box, with a smaller giant box inside. It smelled freshly painted and absolutely no dings or scratches.Just used it for the first time today, on a mega beauty shoot. How do I say this? OMG!!! So gorgeous, so clean, so sharp. I assumed because the interior is painted white, that I would get softer light than my silver, smaller dish. It is softer, but in the best way. I wish I could upload a raw file, then you could see what I mean when I say. The skin almost looks retouched. But here's the magic, I used the sock diffuser it comes with. And you know how a silver dish can give off white to clear hot spots on the nose and forehead? Well, this 28 inch, beautiful beast, gives you the same highlights, without the harshness. The highlights are smooth and well gradient,... 5/5 Calvin Brockington (Dallas, Texas) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Missing washers to secure mounting

    This review would be 5 Stars if judged solely on the performance of the dish after fixing shipping deficiencies.Unfortunately like other reviewers mine arrived with some dents and scratches courtesy of typical USPS shipping and handling. (At least the grid wasn't broken in shipment).Having purchased and assembled various light modifiers previously it wasn't catastrophic to discover installation instructions were not provided?If Fotodiox had included instructions (or decent quality control for that matter) they would have noticed key washers missing from the shipment.First the three center light baffle support screws are threaded on each end. The screws when adjusted into the dish protrude onto the back of the dish which leaves the critical light source mounting adapter an uneven surface? This makes tightening the mounting adapter a totally unacceptable wobbly situation. To correct this, place small washers on the interior of the dish to act as a spacer reducing... 3/5 Solbreeze (CA, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great big softbox. Hard set up. Good results.

    Customer Video Review Length:: 4:20 MinsRecently, I've been trying to find ways to improve my photography at my home studio. In the past, I used my new Alien Bee 800 with either a shoot-through or a reflective umbrella. The results were not too good using a white wall as a background. Hard shadows affected the composition of the portrait and faces always ended up a bit shiny. So I decided to invest in a good but affordable softbox. I went to Amazon and decided on the Fotodiox Pro 48" Octagon Softbox based on good reviews and price (only $50).As usual, after buying a new piece of equipment or accessory, I recorded a video review of the product so other potential buyers can benefit from it. I had to split my videos into two parts due to length. You can find both of them in my youtube channel. I posted part 2 here in Amazon because it includes the review section.Let's start with the materials. The main part of the softbox is made of heavy duty leather-ish heat resistant... 4/5 debaserphoto - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE GETTING THE STRIP SOFTBOX

    2/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fotodiox Pro Strip Softbox 12x80" with Eggcrate Grid and Speedring for Canon Flash Speedlite (Electronics) If you're buying the stripbox PLEASE read carefully. I'm not another angry customer writing a crappy review because I'm in the heat of the moment. I'm trying to save you a WHOLE lot of time.The 12x80" strip softbox simply cannot support it's own weight. You can have the best light stand in the world, but unfortunately the ring adapter is not strong enough to support the weight of the softbox itself. I'm amazed that I'm the only person that has had this problem, and pretty confused as to how they can even sell this like this. It has nothing to do with how it's set up, the quality of your stand, the weight of your light or anything else. Put the stripbox together and hold it by the speedring. It will bend under its own weight. It's that simple. I guess I'm saying don't buy the 12x80" strip softbox. Unfortunate because I was excited about the fabric quality which seems to be fantastic., May 13, 2016

    Stop torturing your expensive lights!...

    Okay, so I own several Fotodiox Softboxes and they are excellent!!! but they are HEAVY!!! Here is the solution to STOP torturing your expensive lights with trying to hold these (and similar) heavy bad-boy softboxes. Do what I did for all my large Fotodiox softboxes on my Einsteins and order the "Interfit Softbox Yoke". It is a heavy-duty stand mounted bracket that holds the softbox, which weighs the most, not the light, and then your light just has to hold it's own weight. I did this for my Einsteins to hold my Fotodiox rectangle and octo-boxes. The speed-ring that comes with the bracket is for Bowens S-Mount but because the mount comes with the complete aluminum adapter and speed ring for holding your rods, just remove the speed ring you need from your existing softbox and use it instead (since you wont need it anyway on the box now). These brackets are heavy duty and are available directly out of Interfit's warehouse in Atlanta and I had them in 2 days. Plus, they're only $50... 5/5 DfwBusinessGuru - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Better than other Cheap Versions

    5/5 HeroDad (Texas) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Studio-98 HAIR LIGHT 8"x36" SOFTBOX + GRID + SPEEDRING FIT ALIEN BEES ALIENBEES B400 B800 B1600 WHITE LIGHTNING X800 X1600 EINSTEIN E640 (Electronics) It's quite a bit better than the FotoDiox version. The material is a bit thicker, the base ring has four tighten screws instead of two. The Egg Crate is much better material. It has instructions that are generic, and don't really match up. But it's not complicated to put together. It's a real solid unit. It's not the easiest to put together, but none of these types are. I will leave mine assembled. The speed ring can be removed, and swapped out if you have other standardized rings, you should be able to fit into this. I have a speed-light ring, that fits just fine. So I can use it with my Einstein or one of my Yongnuo flashes.My photo shows the four thumb screws you remove to change out the adapter plate. Also I found it easiest by sliding in the locking insert into the open slot as the last of the four poles. Also shown is how the internal diffuser attaches, and the ample Velcro section., May 26, 2015

    Poor documentation, probably not a good idea to tear this softbox down and set up repeatedly.

    Documentation is very poor on product. Just a single sheet of paper with a line drawing of the speed ring but nothing about how to set up the softbox. I had minor problems despite my years of experience using soft boxes. The 4 corners of the front white panel where you're supposed to stick the ends of the rods are very shallow and aren't re-inforced. I ended up using gaffer tape to make those corners stronger and a little deeper so that the rods don't slip out and become projectiles.Once I made the corners less slippery and deeper pockets to hold the rods, I was able to set up the softbox okay. I honestly don't know how newbies are going to be able to figure this out without the documentation. I don't plan on disassembling it and re-assembling the softbox simply because I am not too confident in the build of the fabric where the rods are secured to the front white panel.The printed paper that was enclosed made reference to go to youtube and find videos but they weren't... 3/5 Peter Phun (Riverside, CA) - See all my reviews, October 22, 2015

    My photography space is very small, which makes controlling light spill difficult at times. This gridded strip box does an excellent job, letting me direct the light where I want, without excess spill. It does a great job as a hair light (as advertised), but you can use it anytime you want a high contrast light source with dramatic shadows. It's a great value at $50, I bought two!This strip box is very well built, with thick material covering the outside and the reflective inside. The inner and outer baffles are typical diffusion material, but not bad. There are two heat vent flaps, one on each side, to help keep things cool. The grid is really well done, made from thick material. The metal rods and speed ring are all high quality. Overall, the materials are top notch.Putting everything together was a tough at first, I believe this was because I tried following the terrible instructions.
