how to install soft box lights

What do you need to know about softbox lighting?

A softbox is a light modifier that funnels light and spreads it wider to create soft lighting. On the tapered end of the softbox, you’ll find the mount where you can install your light source. In most cases, it uses a Bowens mount, which is the default setup for most softboxes.

What’s the best way to use a softbox?

You can use it pointing down, up, or in a 45º angle, for example. All you need to do now is to experiment taking a few photos with your brand new softbox! It produces wonderful, soft light, lighting an entire person, for example. I always use it in the studio as main light, without needing anything else.

How do you mount a light stand on a softbox?

Make some holes in the softbox, just in the middle of the short side. Then, using some screws and nuts, place the bracket and screw it on, making sure that it’s stable and not moving. To use this bracket, you’ll also need a light stand and a light stand mount swivel, easy to find on eBay, for example, for just only $10.

Can a softbox be used as a reflector?

Softboxes give a lovely soft light. Again, by adding a reflector panel we can fill the shadows on the opposite side. If I am using a matt light source like a softbox, I normally use a matt white reflector to match.
