The Brightness of 1000 SunsAs every photographer knows, properly lighting your subject is, perhaps, the most important part of photography. Without the proper amount of light, you get shadows, dark spots, bright spots, and even a super blurry picture when your camera doesn't capture enough photons. Yes, I said photons, deal with it.
So anyway, I decided that I needed something to light the things I want to take pictures of. I searched eBay and finally found a brand new softbox for around $150. Is it a good one? I don't know. I know nothing about them other than I need one. But I do know one thing. This thing is brighter than 1000 suns. I was seeing spots all evening. It lit up my living room brighter than daylight. The pictures don't do it justice.
