Here’s a DIY option to use your speed light with your studio softboxes.
I was looking at various ways to hook up my SB-800 to my softboxes and found a few options like the Westcott Slipper but found it overpriced considering you could get an Ezybox for less. Being determined to find a way, I continued my hunt. And last week I got lucky and found this Youtube video by Stephen Poff from someone on Twitter who RT it. In his video, he shows how he used a Justin clamp with his speed light and studio softbox. My jaw dropped to the floor! It’s so simple!
Being a big Strobist fan myself, I find myself using my SB-800s more and more. But what was missing was to use them with my studio softboxes. And already having my version of the Justin clamp, I had part of my solution! All I needed to do now was to find a way to attach the clamp to a tripod. Farraging around in my studio gear, I found what I needed! A simple umbrella adapter!
Watch the video for all the details.

This was my 1st video editing experience with Adobe Premiere! I got my 2 hour crash course this weekend. I was hoping to have the tutorial out last Monday but… there’s a big learning curve. 🙂
