A little more about the Paul C Buff Softbox
First of all, most people already know the name Paul C Buff. If you don’t happen to recognize the name, definitely click the link below. Paul C Buff is a great “bang for your buck” kind of company. In addition to offering great lighting equipment they also offer folding softboxes such as the Paul C Buff Softbox.
If you’ve never used a softbox, you’re in for a treat. These softboxes collapse just like an umbrella so they are extremely portable! When it comes to on-location shooting, these light modifiers are the ticket. You literally just pop these open and attach the diffuser to the velcro and you’re done. As a result, you’ll be spending more time shooting than setting up equipment!
The Paul C Buff softbox may be the perfect solution for your headshots or even sunset shoots. Unlike an umbrella or PLM, a softbox will still control the light and point it in a single direction. Paul C Buff offers three rectangular softboxes, two narrow rectangular stripboxes and three octagonal softboxes (“octaboxes”) in various sizes depending on your subject and coverage needs. The octaboxes differ from the softboxes only in shape, as the octagonal shape delivers a more rounded throw, producing a round catch light. Maybe a softbox is exactly what you need for your shoots after all!
Each softbox and octabox will come with the speedring and frame poles already attached – to form the box, you will simply slide and lock the poles into place, then attach your front diffusion panel. The design saves you time in your studio and allows you to take your softboxes and octaboxes on location. Keep in mind these softboxes and octaboxes are only used with Paul C Buff strobes.
Most of all, if you ever have any questions about the softboxes we offer, feel free to come in and chat with us and we can show you a few different options. If you’re afraid of using a softbox, don’t be, we’re here to help! All you have to do is just ask!
