The softbox lantern isn’t usually the first product photographers consider when deciding how to set up a lighting pattern, but its unique structure gives it many versatile qualities.
Traditionally used in filmmaking, the lantern globe is based off Chinese lanterns. The omnidirectional structure is a perfect choice for illuminating entire rooms with soft, even light. A single globe is an ideal solution for lighting a room while the use of several globes will evenly illuminate an entire scene. 360 degrees of lighting creates a soft natural effect that is great for revealing the gradual skin tone in portraits.
The lantern also features a unique push down to clip system that makes set up and tear down quick and easy. Compatible with reflective dishes, the lantern gains the ability to bounce light and produce a larger spill.
The Fovitec lantern can be a load of fun. Give it a try before committing to pricier alternatives.
