So yesterday evening I’m breaking down my 32x32, I go to grab the front diffuser to remove it, and it tears from the Velcro. vmad

No way to fix the diffuser as it ripped jagged.

Ouch... been there myself. Creative Light. Luckily I bought a spare before they morphed.

Temporary: White gaphers tape. Cut it narrow. Maybe clear tape..?

Nothing special, but very pleased given how messy my "studio" (kid's playroom) is. Just a hobby and was taking some pictures of gear I was getting rid of. Flash on the air hockey table wasn't being used, and I was holding white foamcore to the right side close as I could without getting it in frame. Light is a Godox AD200 and 48" softbox.

1. The camera is on a tripod.

2. The headphones are on glass ( black lacobel ).

3. Lighting is from the room.

4. Slow shutter speed.

5. This video (external link) on my TV for background.

Testing out some Bluetooth led strips. Can’t wait to use them on some night shoots!

I thought I had a BTS pic of each lighting setup I had but of course I was missing this one!

Just imagine this lighting but the light on the left in this picture was actually on camera left in the next picture

C&C is appreciated :)

Ouch. Sorry to hear that.

If a replacement isn't available, rip stop nylon works well as a diffuse and you can sew or have it sewn on Velcro. Test first to be sure it doesn't cause a color issue. I have repurposed a diffuser from one softbox application to another. Twice. Don't ask :).


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).

Oh man, that sucks. I never take off the diffusion panels and just fold them while they're both attached. I guess the positive side to this is that the softbox is pretty cheap.

I bought another 32x32 as they aren't expensive. I'm keeping the softbox and inner diffuser, either in case I come across an outer diffuser for sale, or something happens to one of my other softboxes and I can steal the outer diffuser :D

my daughter's band needed some 40s images for a show they were doing so i shot a couple of bandmates in vintage clothing, trying for a 40s vibe with them looking away from the camera.
33" shoot through up and right of camera with a 600ex-rt. probably about 1/4th power
48" shoot through level and left of camera with a 600ex-rt. probably about 1/8th power
ISO 100 1/200 at f3.5

my daughter's band portrait. during a football game after pre-game/before half-time shows. pretty much reverse the lighting from above.
33" up and left of camera at 1/4th,
48" level and right of camera at 1/8th.
ISO 200 1/200 at f3.5

ive never really been a portraitist and while i shot some officer portraits in the Air Force, i didnt really mess around with the lighting too much. other photographers were usually setting things up and i just held the camera and mashed the button...
