^kkart might have something, please check his past journals or maybe he had it in a newsletter.??

You should watch him, he has great information all the time about photography, not just wild life. I think you can find a softbox on DYI.. just google "do it yourself softbox", I know I have seen them.. or take a big sheet and put it over a large spot light, that should diffuse the light somehow. good luck and will look forward to seeing more with your new light system ;) :hug:

First I love the whole green wall series. The use of the empty space really balances out the model's pose. The contrasting colors work well together and nicely compliment the subject. For me the lighting is a little unbalanced and has created some unwanted shadows. If you want a stronger shadow, more dramatic effect, use a more direct light on one side of the model. Or if you want to create a softer, moodier feel, use a soft box to help eliminate the shadows on the wall. Over all, an excellent photo Joe. Keep up the great work and let Bine know we are enjoying her modeling debut.
