Pot of Dreams

For Christmas Instead of a new handbag I got my wife a handbag money pot so she can save for one lol.

On top of that I borrowed it for a shot.

I wanted to test out my new 24" 60cm x 60cm EZ-Fold Studio Softbox Kit with 2 x Diffusers and Ballhead Bracket for Portable Flash and Speedlite which i got for Xmas.

This softbox fits into a very small bag but is massive when unfolded, I wanted this to use with my flashgun out on locations.

Anyway my daughter held the handbag fund money pot for me.

I used my nifty fifty to make use of the f/1.8 aperture to blow as much out of focus as possible then got my new softbox on a stand and fitted my Nikon SB600 to it to add a splash of fill.

The softbox was placed to camera right and slightly above and tilted towards the pot.

The SB600 was set at 1/64 power as I only needed a blip of light and as I had the flashguns built in diffuser down the zoom was set to 14mm to spread the light all around the softbox.

My flashgun was fired using my Yongnuo RF602 trigger and receiver.

Looking forward to using my new softbox more.
