Getting my first bee (800)

Don't use glass. Has nothing to do with DOF, but with the subject reflecting off both sides of the glass. Try black plexiglass or piece of glass that is frosted on one side. (frosted side down, reflective up)

PCB Large softbox, grid, beefier stand, already hAve triggers. I went back and forth between SB and PLM. I think they both have their uses and ill likely end up with a PLM sometime down the road, as well as a vagabond. I was also considering an Octabox. So many options.
