> Light Modifiers > Softboxes and Octaboxes

Our softboxes and octaboxes offer the soft lighting effect that you love without the hassle of construction and setup time.

Softboxes are a standard light modifier for many photographers. Their versatility makes them suitable for everything from portrait to product photography. The shape is similar to window lighting and the light projected is more directional than that of an octabox.
Octaboxes are a favorite amongst portrait photographers. They create one of the most flattering lights on portrait subjects of all types. The rounder shape creates a wrap of diffused light around your subject and creates a natural looking catch-light in the eyes.
Stripboxes create a soft, narrow and directional light with hard shadow edges. This shape makes them perfect for rim or hair lighting in a portrait or a background light for separation. The shape also applies itself well to product photos, as the highlight created follows the contour of the object and creates a natural shaped highlight on reflective surfaces.
