Good Morning Zhuhai
Left: 80cm umbrella box that I feel too small, Right: the new one
I do corporate photography and mostly shoot at location, I need to travel light and can work solely.
I now carry my lighting gears with a lightweight duffle roller bag, and the current bolly box that I using most is buyed to fit that bag, but since it have a exposed pole... I am so worry it will either hurt my client or me one day. If you do headshot in client's office before you will understand... the closer mean softer light... bla bla bla, and when you moving around in a busy / narrow set... get metering the light... etc. you may accidently pole you eyeball out.
Lucky I now find this umbrella octa box and it's collapsed length is 72cm (old bolly box is 73cm) and with a bigger diffusion surface.
Today I am doing tests and try to understand the characteristic of the light that output from this octabox, then I will take it to serve our client as soon as next assignment come :)
