  1. HEY MANY. I HAVE BEEN YOUR FOLLOWER FOR THE PAST FEW WEEKS. I AM A STARTER WITH VIDEOS AND PHOTOGRAPHY. I OWN A SONY A7II. I AM GETTING A LOT OF NOISE WITH HIGH ISO BUT WHEN I REDUCE IT, THE IMAGE GETS DARKER. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME AND OTHER PEOPLE WITH THE THIS CAMERA ON HOW TO SET IT UP AND GET SOME GOOD QUALITY IMAGE IN BOTH VIDEOS AND PHOTOS?. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.

  2. Hello buddy!

    Thank you

  3. Hey guys, has anyone ever tried using something like a westcott rapid box or any softboxes/ beauty dishes for that matter with a powerful speedlite like the godox v1 instead of strobes? Just starting out with off camera flashes and I wanted to experiment with my v1. Thanks!
    Thinking of getting the godox ad360 as my first actual strobe in the future

  4. I'm going to attach the dish into my 36" Westcott rapid box and see how that turns out 👌 I've never thought of doing that until today. Hopefully it works out so I can get rid of the 24" beauty dish that's not collapsible and takes up too much space!

  5. i just didnt get it… i mean softbox light is as specular as beauty dish, while shadows were not pitch black. umbrella was the same as softbox or i just don't get something ?

  6. Im interested in seeing a square or octagonal softbox vs a long rectangular softbox (eg 40x140cm) in both vertical and portrait orientations, curious to how it would look at different orientations if its soft and not soft at the same time if its placed a metre away etc.

  7. I like the rapid box 36" but I wish Westcott would design a grid to go over, just to focus the light a little more. With the umbrella you can also throw a white sheet, over the top to get extra softening, especially if you bounce the light back from the umbrella, though of course it isn't perfect. With the beauty dish, you can get great results shooting men at 45 degrees, and it is nice for black and white where you want that contrast.
