Re: Deeppara90 "Parabolic reflector" and central focusing pole thoughts and mini review

For the life of me I can't figure out the point of putting diffusion in front of anything like a para or any other more specular source.  The whole point is to have light rays travelling vaguely all in the same direction, and diffusion just undoes all that.  You can have pretty "messy" light sources behind diffusion and it all comes out the same.

On the other hand, if you only want to lug one modifier around, I can see turning your specular source into a softbox-like thing for versatility.
