Re: Umbrella Octabox vs Shoot Through Octabox

The difference between shoot through softboxes and reflective softboxes is that you can usually get more diffusion and more even coverage with shoot through softboxes. But that is usually a result of double or even triple diffusion panels in the softbox.

All that being said, there isn't much of a difference.

Also, the reflective softbox has it's own set of properties that you might find advantageous. You can skip the diffusion panels to get indirect light bouncing off the silver interior. This will produce a different looking than an uber-diffused softbox. Not better or worse. Just different.
