Feathering the light from your softbox...


Feathering the light that comes from your softbox is a very important tool/technique and as photographers we need to know how to do it.

So here are a few articles that will show you how:

From Strobist - Feathering a softbox

A PDF - Feathering is ticklish business

Amherst Media - Feathering

Digital Artform - Feathered light from a grid (be warned this article has some mannequin nudity)

Thanks for pointing that out. It makes total sense, but sometimes that escapes you in the heat of the moment.

I've actually done this "feathering" thing without knowing the science, etc. Just trying to get a softer effect. Good to read up on, though.
