Term: Soft Box
Description: A soft box is a light modifier commonly used in portraiture that, in effect, turns a small, bright light source (such as a strobe) into a big, soft, semi-directional light source. Compared to umbrellas (which tend to spill light everywhere) or other similar modifiers, soft boxes provide very directional, controlled light.
