Lightbank Softbox Lighting
A great video showing the Lightbank Softbox and how to use it to give a balanced shot mixing it with daylight produced by Gavin Hoey.
The Lightbank Softbox is a continuous lighting kit that has an integral softbox, using 7 x 50w energy efficient 5400k daylight bulbs and a 100cm diameter softbox. The energy efficient daylight fluorescent bulbs have a E27 edison scew fit and can last thousands of hours they have the advantage of giving out less heat than a tungsten bulb giving the equivalent amount of light, they also have a combined equivalent of 1400w of an incandescent bulb.
This is an all round photography lighting solutio,n can be used for full length or small groups, still digital photography and also for complete scenes video lighting. Very versatile units give perfect control by using switches on the back which allow any number of bulbs to be switched on or off. The front diffuser is attached with velcro so can be used without the outer diffuser for a slightly harsher light.
