Can you name 2 frequent mistakes and 2 non-typical uses for softboxes

This could be interesting.

I'll start with mine.

MISTAKES

  • softbox centered on the subject so almost half of the light goes unused, in the subject's back (better to have the back edge aligned with the subject)

  • softbox put at a random distance from the subject, without taking into account the fall off (for close subjects) or relative size to the subject (for subject further away)

OTHER USES

  • strip light (when most of the active surface is covered with an opaque panel)

  • ?? (sorry, I don't know others)

Cheers,
Kevin
