    holy shit, the 'giant' softbox has to be fucking gigantic. this thing is big enough!

    this is going to be a gigantic step in the right direction, and going to be so much better than a couple of strobes.

    :bigok:

    Next you'll be wanting to buy an octobox, then a beauty dish, then a small strip light, then some foamcore, then some more stands, then some more lights.....It never ends.

    being a photography forum, I thought it was standard to have a photo in the original post.

    c'mon jcolman. I'm tired of you pimping out the same picture/setup. I know you have some great new stuff you're hiding from us.

    I don't have any other "behind the scenes" shots. I should shoot some.

    The little speedlight in the foreground was moved to provide light for the person in the background. The "setup" pic was shot at the end of the session. These are some of the pics from the session.
