Soft box or umbrella?
1

I’m new to flash photography. I’m working with a Canon 600 EXII-RT and the ST-E3-RT transmitter. That’s as far as my flash setup goes. I’m looking to shoot maternity photos and also newborn photos of my child after we get him home.

I’ve been reading on the strobist the 101 article and while it’s suggested on there to buy a flash stand, an umbrella holder/cold shoe and  multi use umbrella.

I know softboxes are also an option.

my question is, what way do I go for the gear I currently have? I’ll be shooting both indoors and out. Simple is better for me but I don’t want to outgrow what I buy with technique.

help?
