    Anyone use Photo Umbrellas or Softboxes?

    I've ordered a pair of continuous lighting photo umbrellas so that I can properly light my artwork to photograph it. I bought the diffuse white umbrellas because they supposedly can eliminate shadows on the subject when placed correctly whereas the softboxes are said to simulate directional light as coming from a window or side light source. Basically, that's what I have already and I'm trying to get rid of.

    I was curious if anyone is using these kinds of lighting tools in their photography. I'd be interested to hear some experienced input on using them!

    I have limited experience with photo umbrellas but yes they work great & use at least 2-3 around the subject. My father was a photographer & I still have all of his old equipment in a closet but haven't used any of it in years.
