TommyImperfection: What size soft box is that? And who makes it?
ZIAUDDIN MOHAMMED: Really great, we are learning !!!!!
Travis Gadsby: That stand is the Manfrotto 231c. It is very helpful in the studio as it allows you to drop the softbox to the floor with one handed operation. You can expect to pay about $260 for it, but well worth the money. You will find them for sale on at bhphoto.com
bayou boggie: what kind of softbox stand is that? i want one that will just slide right down to the floor like that.
RayValdezPhotography: Yes, I got the vampire 10x20 ultra smack from Paula. It comes tomorrow.
Travis Gadsby: Yes. The back side of the colorsmacks are white. If you stick with a lower contrast design, the back could easily be used as a high key backdrop.
RayValdezPhotography: can you use the other side of the smacks as a white backdrop as well?
Travis Gadsby: @DietAndRecipes - Not necessarily. It depends on whether you wish your walls to act as subtractive lighting or reflected lighting. If you leave them white, you can utilize them as a built in reflector. If you are shooting in a small space and having trouble getting stronger light ratios, then it is likely because of too much light bouncing around off your walls and ceiling and filling in your shadows. We have a large shooting space and high ceilings, in which case I enjoy the white walls.
DietAndRecipes: Walls should be painted matt black.
becpuls: Can this system be used for large rolls of seamless paper?
c77hoff: What lightbox is it?...I just want a good lightbox. Also are you using a remote flash?
Michelle Schrieber: What size is your soft box and your reflector?
Travis Gadsby: @jsanz11
That is a Spider camera holster.
Joey Sanchez: how are yuo carrying your camera around on your hip ?
Travis Gadsby: @nmomoct28 - That light stand is a Manfrotto product. It is featured on the front page of our website at silverlakephoto. The model number is 231cs. It is an 8 ft tall, one handed light stand on wheels. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
RollinMcCartyPhoto: Very nice system! I like how efficiently (fast) you can work with it.
