I will use a portable 640 WS battery flash. I need a big light source to produce an even, low intensity light. I want to shoot quite open. I think a diameter of around 1500-1800 mm would be good.
I tried a soft box of this size. It was not pleasant to work with. I was hoping there would be some kind of umbrella style octaboxes intead. Also gives a nice catch light.
