Recently editorial and portrait photographer Elaine Torres created a tutorial on how to evenly light your backdrops with just one light. In this tutorial she uses our ModMaster™ Multi-Fabric Softbox. She explains why she chose this softbox by saying, “The key element is in the size and type of modifier you’re using. To achieve this, I prefer to use medium to large octaboxes or parabolic umbrellas. This is why I decided to use the Savage Universal 78’’ ModMaster™ Multi-Fabric Octobox for the tutorial. The octobox’s circular shape and large size allows me to spill the light into the background evenly around the model, and to light up the body and face at the same time. Always remember to avoid using a grid, since we need to intentionally allow the light to spill.”
