Miniature Studio Softbox

SlickforceSoftlight™ – Pre-light Reference Tool

SlickforceSoftlight01aThe Slickforce Softlight™ is a miniature replica of a professional octagonal softbox that can be used to help artists pre-visualize their studio and on-location shoots, photograph their collectible miniatures or action figures (we favor Star Wars Stormtroopers) or just have a cool conversation piece on their desk.  Moreover, the Softlight is great for children, too. These budding photographers-in-training can play photography with their dolls, action figures or any other toy.

SlickforceSoftlight01bThe Slickforce Softlight™ actually functions in the same manner as a real softbox, shaping light with its umbrella and translucent diffuser design and highly reflective silver interior surface. Octagonal softboxes are most commonly used for such purposes as fashion, beauty and portrait photography. One of the most important reasons for this is that their unique shape creates a beautiful, soft, natural looking light source, as well as an attractive catch light in the subject’s eye.

SlickforceSoftlight01cThe Slickforce Softlight™ comes with a silver umbrella, octagonal translucent diffuser, light stand-base, 2 extender poles and a working miniature battery generator.
