Creator: Kirk Tuck | Photography - 2009-04-01

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 client’s 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 images—from casual headshots to full-length, formally posed portraits. With strategies for meeting lighting challenges found outside of the studio—from evaluating existing light to modifying or supplementing light as needed—this book will help photographers shoot confidently by developing a plan for creating professional-quality location portraits.

    Provides excellent light, packs small, and is extremely well made and durable

    Customer Video Review Length:: 2:34 MinsI was very happy when I received this softbox, along with another Fotodiox softbox which I will be reviewing separately, as a gift. It provides excellent light, packs very flat, and is extremely well made and durable. Best part is, it's huge. With a 400 Watt studio light I can light whole people with that excellent, wraparound light that you get from a softbox. And, since it is very transportable I can take it this outstanding modifier wherever I go. It's like having portable sunlight!My only "issue" was that it took a bit longer to set up than I would like. The annoyance is you need to feed eight metal rods into the adapter and they can get jumbled up as you are trying to do that. At home it's not that big an issue but if I'm setting up in front of someone the last thing I want them to see is me wrestling with equipment. Fortunately I was able to come up with a simple and inexpensive fix that allows me to go from bag to completely set up... 5/5 Bob Tobias "Robert Tobias" (Arlington, VA USA) - See all my reviews, May 21, 2012

    48" Fotodiox Octobox

    I'm writing this review after 3 months of use and it's still the best bang for your buck you can get. The quality was a lot better than I expected. The material is very strong and has a nice inner diffuser. Although I don't like the connections they use for the inner diffuser, I'll probably replace those clips. It doesn't come with instructions, but it doesn't take an engineering degree to understand exactly how it works. I wonder if these people also have problems using common umbrellas. It is a little heavy paired with my Alien Bee 800 so a medium duty light stand is a must. Anyone complaining about this deal needs to take their $35 bucks back and go put it towards a $1000 Elinchrom Octobox. I see the potential for poking the rods through the seams, but if you don't act like the Hulk I'm sure I'll be fine and even if you do it's an easy fix. I gave it 5 stars because I didn't buy a Kia and expect it to be a Mercedes, however there are still millions of happy Kia owners. Buy it... 5/5 Charles Edward - See all my reviews This review is from: Fotodiox Pro Octagon Softbox, 48" with Speedring for Alien Bees Strobe Light (Electronics) I'm writing this review after 3 months of use and it's still the best bang for your buck you can get.

    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?)

    Pretty great product for the money

    I know own 6 different sized boxes by this company. I just received this 60" octbox today. I wish I had purchased a mouth ago when it was $10 cheaper and did not include the optional beauty dish center. The dish center is plastic and does not grip the shaft as advertised. I merely slips and slides so forget about trying to set the focus if the box is angled down. I would not say this is a loos loose just a disappointment since this crummy piece of plastic has increased the price of all the softboxes by $10. The box itself is great very strong and easy to setup It has been tested and concluded that these boxes have a cooler color temperature then some other manufactures. This is do to the diffusion material and the silver lining. For most shooting in raw and targeting the white point should be accurate enough to get warmer color. I still think these are the best deal out there for quality and versatility at this price point. These boxes are so fast to setup and break down it has made... 4/5 Cody L.

    Best bang for the buck

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer (Houston, Tx) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fotodiox Pro Studio Solutions EZ-Pro 60" Octagon Softbox with Speedring for Alien Bees Strobe Flashlight B400/B800 (Black) (Electronics) I liked my purchase enough to give it a 5 star rating. The outer shell is somewhat thick and feels like decent quality. This may not be a fair comparison, but The mechanism and metal ribs inside of this octa is much stronger than my Paul C Buff PLM. I haven't tested this yet, but I feel confident this octa will handle some light wind outdoors without issue. I've uploaded one of my images to show what the light looks like on an actual subject. 0, March 7, 2012

    Very good octabox

    I haven't tried many octaboxes before. I come from a filmmaking background, so we use Chimeras all the time, but I can't compare it to Elinchrom or any other brand.I bought the non-EZ pro 60" octabox first, and hated it. It felt really cheap, especially the Balcar adapter. It took 20 minutes to setup and another 15 minutes to tear down. And I hated having those rods all loose in the bag. Then I bought the EZ pro version. It's vastly better. It's built like a Rifa light or any other octabox that opens like an umbrella. After the first time putting on the inner and outer baffles, setup time is about one minute. You open it like an umbrella (but backwards) and the diffusion and rods are already attached from the last time. Give it another minute to put the eggcrate on and you're ready. Especially for location work, this unit is great to be ready in 2 minutes.The quality feels solid. The Balcar adapter and speedring feel solid as well. It fits on my Einstein... 4/5 Bri - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
