Is one 60cm softbox sufficient?
Sep 8, 2012

I have ordered a 60cm foldable softbox, the type that is structured to be used with a speedlight type flash. My question is:

(a) will one softbox proove to be enough, or while the prices are reasonable and I have the funds, should I purchase another? Alternativey I can use one shoot through umbrella together with the one softbox.

(b) The speedlight I will be using is a YN 560II with a GN (tested) or around 39 - the advertised figure may be different - should I go for a configuration that enables me to mount (up to) 3 speedlights in a 60cm softbox? Or is this overkill?

I would appreciate your answers.
