For FILL flash you may need to use the camera in Manual mode (instead of Aperture Priority) so that you can really dial down the flash output.

I'll start with SB600 with soft box. I didn't understand your suggestion regarding 'Manual mode'. Do you mean manual flash instead of iTTL? I'll appreciate if you could teach me how do you set your flash output for macro. The SB600 manual states that the shooting distance range is 2-66 feet. Does it mean we cannot use it for closer range (<2feet)? Does iTTL work at such close range?
