Thanks Peter,

I intend to use an enlarger when I can afford to get one. I was just thinking of light source that I could precisely control, and in this case, already have on hand. The flash came to mind but then I added the idea of the softbox to even out the light over the area of the print. While I recon it does sound a bit more complicated than a 15watt bulb hanging on a wire, in my mind it is not, I just figure the softbox would improve the quality of the light.
