Flashgun Softboxes

Adding a portable flash softbox to your off camera lighting workflow will give a beautiful softened light that is extremely flattering for portraits in particular. Speedlights tend to give off a relatively harsh directional light unless they are modified or diffused in some way. A soft box is intended to do precisely that and they are also extremely portable being ideal for location photographers. Our options are either small flash mounted models intended to sit directly on the flashgun, or larger versions which are mounted off camera on a lighting stand.

Compatibility is no problem as the entire range are compatible with all major camera brand models including Canon Speedlite, Nikon flash, Metz and many others. Location portrait photographers will often bring at least one or two options with them when photographing portraits, newborns, weddings or events. The ability to soften and diffuse light with a small piece of equipment is essential for these styles. Softboxes are easily collapsible and quick to fold flat which makes them portable, lightweight and easy to bring along virtually anywhere.

Photographers will also utilise a range of other complementary accessories to create unique images, including gels and diffusers. These can work in combination with a flash soft box or as an alternate option. Umbrellas perform a similar function, however they afford slightly less control over lighting. Typically a professional will carry both options for various situations. Rick Sammon has an excellent article about using a soft box with a speed light which you can view here for inspiration.

At Park Cameras we have a wide range of flashgun softboxes both online and available to touch and try in both of our showroom stores. If you have any questions please get in touch and we will be happy to assist with your query.

Throughout the year, Park Cameras hold and attend a range of events. For photographers currently stuck indoors, as opposed to our events that are traditionally held in store or on the road, we are currently working on a range of events that can be held in the comfort and safety of your own home. In these uncertain times, there’s never been a better time to get to grips with your camera, and hopefully we can help achieve this. Find out more
