      When do you use the umbrella and when do you use a softbox?

    4. chris johnson. 55 months ago | reply

      @KameraKevin, whenever you want the effect of a umbrella use it, or when you want the effect of a softbox use that, or hell whenever you want the effect of both use both.

      i'm wonderin what that white strip thingy is for, bounce or what?

      Christopher Venture: I think the white strip is the exposed area of the seamless. I'm sure it added a small amount of highlight from below too. I could be wrong.

      umbrella is giving rather harsh and contrast difuse light ,and softbox much more soft, right?

      My guess is the white area is for bounce too. It's got me curious.

      Dustin, is that what it is for?

    8. chris johnson. 55 months ago | reply

      i'm vote for bounce as i wouldn't think the seamless would have a white seam like that. who knows...

      i bet the black seamlees just was not long enough to cover the all of the white that he had on the floor, and that it had nothing to do with the lighting but what do i know i was'nt there dustin will have to reveal the secret of the mysterious white strip.
