Hi Everyone,

Using a mobile device and couldn't find the search options. Sorry if this has been asked before.

I'm looking for a soft light modifier than can withstand windy conditions. Have tried using an 60" umbrella outdoors and I can just see it flying away one day.

Any recommendations?

Is the 28" westcott soft box any good?



...also - if you must use a huge soft modifier - use tent pegs and parachute cord to stake your "sail" into the wind just like a tent in windy conditions, tying off to the leading corners of the softbox/brella to share the force of the wind best you can...
