I'm playing around with the idea of getting myself a single strobe (battery pack 600W version so I have some portability to work with) to experiment with lighting and softboxes. I have a pair of flashes (SB700 and SB600) but have always found thefairly harsh and I'm looking for something that will allow me to experiment a bit.
Also interested to hear what would be the ideal softbox to go with it? Was thinking of a 90cm Hexagonal as a starting point and maybe adding a beauty disk depending on how it goes.
Have those who bought strobes found them to be worthwhile?
