you need to move that bitch further away and turn the power down
By softbox, do you mean the full, furious power of the sun?
because if so, then yeah.
Yes I do I have it in my basement
your picture is proof of that.
lol good comment
did you put the front diffuser on the box?
you exposed for the wrong part of the image
you killed the benefit of the softbox, i see no feathered light, its harsh as fuck. looks as if you have it blasted at you from like 1ft away and at full blast
it could have been fine if properly exposed
looks like a UFO is about to land horizontally on your face.
This is a joke, right?
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.
its not the distance, its the power of the flash. just turn the power down.
or change the exposure
i lol'd at power of sun comment
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.
expose for the highlights, develop for the shadows.
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
