Understanding Octodomes/Octo Boxes: A Lighting Tutorial by Jay P. Morgan ‘The Slanted Lens’

This tutorial video is somewhat of a extension of a few episodes that were posted a while ago regarding soft boxes HERE and HERE. In this Slanted Lens lesson, Jay will take an in-depth look at 8-sided soft boxes, or also known as Octodomes, Octobox, OctaBox, Octa Softbox, Octa Bank, or Octodomes. Jay will explain what makes an Octodome different from a soft box, what the coverage area is and quality of its light. At the end, he’ll put the Octodome to practical use by using it with a grid, as well as having a 2-light setup.
