Thanks Ted off to see your lights.....are you using strobes
and if so how many and what level of watts.

Im on the verge of upgrading my gear....and Im trying to find out as much as I can before purchasing.

I like the idea of diffusion panels..and there are a few Softbox v Diffusion on youtube
that made a very good arguement for the diffusion panels.

thanks

If you are shooting knives, I'd recommend diffusion panels instead of softboxes. I usually use a 42"x42" or 42"x78" panel with some white or black cards to take knife photos. It gives me a lot more control over highlights than softboxes do.

Here's some of my knife pics.
