The Large Octabox
I love all of the window light here at Atomic Canary. I love it when it's soft. I love it when the sun shines in. There's almost nothing better. There are times when you might want to use something a bit different. There's also that thing that happens super early at this time of year — darkness.
If you want to make pictures that are just about as easy as falling off a log or the subject is dynamic and you have to pay more attention to them then where exactly the light is falling give the studio's five foot octabox a try.
Pick a direction you want the light to come from and you are pretty much done. New to studio lighting, let this be your first time out, it's almost can't fail.
