On this clip we're going to be talking about soft boxes. Soft boxes are a way to diffuse
the light source and make it appear a lot larger than what it really is. This is a mono
light, which has a very small light source and if, if you're to use this on a shiny object,
it would give you just a point of light, but we can attach the soft box. Okay, each of
the soft boxes attached in a different way depend upon the type of light that it's going
on. After you get it on you just want to seal it up so you don't have stray light coming
out onto your, onto your set. These soft boxes come in different sizes. This is a medium.
The one above me here is a large soft box. This is also a medium. These are used for
strobes of all different kinds. They can also be used on hot lights, tungsten lights. The
ones for tungsten lights are a little sturdier and a little less, a little more fire resistant.
What these actually do is they soften light to make it look like a window light. In fact,
one of the things we do a lot of times if we're shooting something specular, it's we
actually run strips of cardboard across and make it look like window panes, and then when
it reflects into, like a wine bottle or something like that it will actually look like a window.
