Just picked up an Amvona 5' octabox off of ebay and thought I would take it for a quick spin.

I don't know much about studio lighting...that thing is huge!

The shot looks fairly well exposed, but it appears to me as though the light coming from each side is a different colour. On the right it is a bright clear white, on the left side it seems warmer and more towards yellow/orange.

Looks like a lot of fun to set up! ;)

Very good Shooterman.

As always you have the perfect model.

I can't wait to see the octabox in the glam section. ;)

Nice shot Randy. So ebay, huh? I may have to get me one of those. Did you use a beefier stand, or weight down the kit stand?

Randy, That is too cool! I love the effect and as always, you have the perfect model. Also, looking forward to seeing you put it to good use in G+N ! I hope your wife is not afraid of that thing falling on her head.

Randy, I have the d-lite4 kit and was wondering how you attach it. Do you have to make a mod on the speedring?

Even with shipping this works out much cheaper than anything we buy for in the UK.
