Just got my Elinchrom Deep Octa softbox and wanted to test how it handled. I like the system elinchrom got, its easy to assemble. At first I felt that it was difficult but then i realised I had to hold the base down with one hand and then I applied some force on the rods. It seems robust and it handles well.
The Image above was shoot in the door frame at my apartment. I used my quadra and the Deep Octa on a Avenger C-Stand. Everything Manual here, 1/200 sec on f8 with flash white balance. I brought it in to Photoshop for minimal retouch job.
20 minutes from start to finnish.
