I have some high ceilings that do not really will work for bouncing. Any idea how far you can even bounce? We also have some walls painted various colors, so I’m thinking that is a bad idea to bounce off of? Most of the time I can’t really set up a soft box on a stand because I’m trying to capture the moment with my kids. By the time I get a stand, softbox, etc, the moment is gone....
1. Soeren, you suggested a 60cm octabox. I know next to nothing about studio lighting. Why only 60cm? Can a larger one spread light from a flash? Can a soft box designed to work with studio lighting also work with a flash?
2. Soeren, you mentioned you have the XL Flashbender. How close do you need to be to your subject to get good results with it?
