thanks for the replies so far.
yes, i know, using lighting equipment wlll be a different approach than taking spontaneous photos. and it might most likely involve some "assistant" who holds the light stand etc... so it will complicate things quite a bit.
it is an experiment and new challenge, i haven't done that before. but on my last trip (to ethiopia) i had many occasions where i would have needed additional (articifial) light.
i already bought some equipment (the lastolite ezybox hotshoe, and a lumopro umbrella), and only after i bought it, i found out that there are softboxes that fold much smaller than the one i bought. ;-(
i might return the softbox and replace it with something else... not sure yet.
