Softbox VS Umbrella
Dec 13, 2011

Ok guys, time for presents and I've been given the option of iether an umbrella or a soft box to start my portrait adventure. Also suggestions on brands and/or type and size.

What I need to know is your opinion on which would be better suited for portraits?

It's primary use will be used in conjunction with a Canon 580 EXII, and used in house.

All opinions welcome:)
