THE fluorescent soft-box

I was recently on an assignment to photograph undergraduate students in the labs where they were working and ALL the lighting is a mixture of fluorescent lighting and some daylight from windows.

After the shoot, I went home and thought about ways to control the fluorescent lighting that was already present and what I came up with was MY OWN idea, so I fashioned this “fluorescent soft-box” and took a portrait of my husband.  REALLY looking forward to using it on the NEXT shoot.

The current bulb in there is 3700 K,  the rig is a modified Z-bracket for a speed light and the soft-box is a Softbox Octa 90 RF made by Creative Light.
