Exercise Softening the light (page 155)

Still-life arrangement without and with a diffuser

I have used a Bowens Flash light.

Without the soft box the contrasts are more pronounced and the edges are harder. I prefer the softer effect effect with the diffuser.

I append two more photos where I think the effect is clearer to see: the first without soft box and the second with.

Without soft box
