Softboxs – I love them, but one thing I`ve started getting excited over is the size and closeness of the box in relation to the subject.
I`ve recently invested in a much smaller softbox, that held closer to the subject gives a really beautiful light ( we all know that the closer the light to the subject is the softer the light ), roughly the same as a larger softbox, but I`m able to get the softbox out of the frame and this gives me more angle choices.
Try it – you may love it.

Sorry for the delay in getting new material up online – Big news s taht I`ve been picked up by a PR agent so we`ve been spending alot of our time in meetings, brainstorming sessions – and of course shooting!
That said theres always time for learning so I`m going to recommend that if people dont already do, check oyt the fee Manfrotto webinars every week. There FREE! and excellent, I`ve just sat through an hour long Joe McNally workshop – FOR FREE!!! These two images were created a few years ago using strobist techniques ( now refined after the workshop! )
He`s my strobist god, so love this way of interacting and learning! Check it out!
Ok, so here`s a quick video I made of me and my teams adventures last month when we were shooting in Berlin for the second time this year.
Earlier this year we were there shooting for the Vans shoe company, and loved it, but I must say that going back and shooting in the spring reveals so much more about the city.
Derelict buildings and foreboding architecture collides with modern western influences in this amazing city. Take a view of the video and you`ll see for yourselves!

Hey all, here`s a short Animoto video of our Rome adventure – http://animoto.com/play/mJgWMY83y83C4OnPZD3HDg – I feel that it showcases how amazing the city is, and I shot it specifically in a more candid way to get away from the traditional “holiday snaps” – let me know what you think, have I captured the feel of the city, and more importantly of our adventure?
