Photographers Make a Professional softobox for under $20

A Softbox is a type of light modifier, used specially in studio or outdoor portraits. It creates a soft diffused light by directing light through some diffusing material. The light is reflected in its inner walls, covered with a bright surface, usually aluminum foil, bouncing against a white diffusion sheet.
It can be used with either strobe light or continuous light sources. The main purpose of a softbox is to create a soft and uniform light, often used as key light. Also, it’s perfect for lighting a studio, where every inch of bright area is important.
Now you can create your own softbox using cardboard, aluminum, and a few other items that won't cost you a pretty penny. Check out this tutorial
