How many of you have a square or rectangular softbox and have been living with squarish catchlights? Well, suffer no more. A small can of black fabric paint can give you ROUND catchlights for a more pleasing look. All you have to do is paint the translucent white fabric on the front of your softbox, as I have done here, creating a circle through which the light passes. Note here the extra diffusion fabric hanging from the bottom that I clip over the front when even softer light is needed. In the next picture, you'll see the inside of the softbox (a Westcott Apollo Mono, based on an umbrella frame). The white fabric at left is the translucent front. The sides and back are reflective silver. Note the direction of the strobe head, aimed toward the back, so that the light first bounces off the silver reflective material, before punching through the white translucent fabric on the front. In the final picture you can see the extra diffusion material clipped over the front of the softbox. This gives me one bounce and two diffusion (3 layer modification), for a very pleasing soft light with round catchlights. Yes, those are wooden clothespins. Comments welcome. Thanks for looking.
