Understanding Octagonal Softbox
Here in this video will understand how Octagonal Softbox works and how does it affect your exposure and output, it will shown on this video using different size of softbox how does it affect the subject, first of all, I have no idea why there isn’t a standard name for octagonal softboxes, every company uses their own name –Photoflex called it as Octadome, Elinchrom Octa, Hensel Octaform… it gets confusing! That said the Octagon shaped soft-box is one of my favorite light modifiers. Not only does it make for beautiful catchlights it also wraps around the face and body in a way other soft boxes just can’t seem to pull off.
