Earlier last year I have bought a soft box, similar size to my window which in fact is not that big and tried to imitate the window light. The whole challenge is to diffuse the light to get a similar effect. I use all fabric that came with the soft box to defuse it as much as possible. Last week after over a month break from any major shooting I have had a chance to get two models and worked with two different light sources. Now you can figure out yourself which is which and the one you think looks better 😉 Actually can you tell the difference?
Models I had an honor to work with were Sara Berger and Xiaolan Jiao. Camera and the rest of gear I used were, Nikon D800, 85mm F1.4 and 50mm F1.4 lenses, Nikon flash light and soft box with all available diffusion fabrics, the reflector and the last but not least the window light 🙂
