A softbox is a rectangular, square or octagonal box covered with a white diffusion material which fits over the light source (such as a continuous light on a stand). It’s one of the most common and simplest of all light modifiers. It’s also the most used in professional photo studios. “Why” you ask? It gives the most versatility out of any modifier on the market.
A professional softbox studio lighting kit, such as our Fovitec 2500w Photo & Video Studio 3 light & Boom arm Softbox Lighting Kit which contains everything that you need to set up and create professional-looking shots for Product Photography, Portrait or video (YouTube, business, vlogging etc).
- Perfect Lighting for Product Photography
As a business owner or photographer, you know how crucial professional product photos are. The images need to be clear, crisp and bright if you want to engage the intended consumer. You can use the three-point softbox to light your product and the background at the same time.

2. Portrait Photography
With the three softboxes included in the Fovitec 2500w Photo & Video Studio 3 light & Boom arm Softbox Lighting Kit choose a suitable background/s and you can take huge range of portrait images. For a typical beauty shot (see above example), you will need to make sure your main lights are directly in line with the model’s nose. This will stop any shadows that may appear on either side of the subject’s nose.
Also, have the boom arm positioned above the model to fill any shadows that might sneak their way in.
You may be surprised that your white background comes out grey in your images – this is because the softbox is lighting your subject, not the background. But as you can see the Grey Muslin background we used above is a look that is an effective one, and popular for corporate and other types of headshots.
3. Professional Online / YouTube Videos
A professional softbox studio lighting kit can make all the difference when you are producing high-quality videos for your vlog, YouTube video, website marketing video or tutorial.
Using the boom arm from the Fovitec 2500w Photo & Video Studio 3 light & Boom arm Softbox Lighting Kit above the subject and the two softboxes provide even fill light from both sides. You will get perfect lighting, so your viewers will see the best of you.
Your softboxes should be positioned slightly above and to the side of the subject unless you want an different effect. If so, then you would angle the lights toward your subject. If you are looking to incorporate audio then we also do a kit with added microphone: Fovitec 2500w Softbox Photo/Video Lighting Kit & Boya Compact Microphone YouTube/Vlogging/Facebook
