I have been looking at purchasing a softbox and wow i didn't realise there was so many different sizes! How do i work out what i need??
I am having a stall at the local kids market next month. I did it at the start of the year but the pics didn;t turn out that great as i was just using my 580exII on camera and bouncing it off a reflector..but hmm not that great! lol.
I have a 2 x 2m stall space where i will have a white backdrop setup and i will be shooting mainly bubs and small kids (i guess what places like gotcha kids, pixie etc do in shopping centres). Although iwant have a stage or anything - it will just be a backdrop setup on stands and on the floor if that makes sense (i guess how you would normally set one up).
So ANYWAY i was thinking i should get a softbox and noticed the ones the shopping center pics uses are quite huge (we dont get them here very often so haven;t been able to have a good look and i felt a bit rude going to check it out! hehe).
Could anyone recommend what would be suitable?
I am going to setup and have some practise goes before the big day so hoping to get it soon.
We are building a 3 bay gagrage at our new home and will be turing that into a studio when its finished..would what ever i get for the market be suitable to add to a proper studio setup later down the track. (I am very new to this - i usually go to the clients house and use natural around their home or go to locations etc so very out of my comfort zone!) But keen to !
Thank so much
