The shape of deep parabolic softboxes creates a unique quality of light that is highly coveted by portrait, fashion and beauty photographers. The parabolic design yields soft focused light with a crisp edge.
The inner 1-stop diffuser has a 2-stop center diffuser that eliminates the hotspot that is common with the parabolic design. This helps to create a soft light, even without the use of the outer diffuser. Removing the outer diffuser allows for even greater focus of the light and creates crisp, defined shadows while still maintaining the soft quality. This medium size softbox is ideal when portability is a priority and for soft headshots, macro work, or crisp full-body or hair-and-accent lighting.
An expandable mounting arm controls the intensity and direction of your lighting, giving more variety to your light source. The sturdy brackets are equipped with built-in Bowens Speedrings. The brackets are designed to eliminate mounting stress on the light stand and provide additional support for the softbox. This allows for easy maneuvering in the direction of light.
Fovitec's line of classic parabolic softboxes comes in three different sizes depending on the photographer's needs. These new modifiers are designed for everyday use in professional studios and were crafted to meet the demands of even the most stringent photographer.
Every Fovitec Classic Parabolic Softbox features:
- High-quality fabric and rods, for everyday studio or location use
- High-Contrast Silver Lining, for maximum light efficiency and even, edge-to-edge light throughout the softbox
- UV-Coated diffusers, for more durability and to eliminate magenta color shift. The inner diffuser also features a 2-stop center spot to eliminate hotspots and further soften the light.
- 16-hole Bowens® S-Type Speedring
