    By softbox, do you mean the full, furious power of the sun?

    because if so, then yeah.

    Its not a joke. I just got the thing and I am trying new stuff out. I dont have a strobe that fits into it so I put my SB in there and fired away. I know you have to have it further away from the subject to feather the light but I am working with what I have right now and I am testing new things out.

    Well since I am just learning how to use it could you please explain the proper way to expose it. I am use to using the flash on camera.

    it would be easier if you started by telling us ho you expose for it. with strobes, you either want a hand held lightmeter, or in a self portrait case eith take a few test shots or put something else like gray card in place of your head and chimp away
