Our very popular Webinar on alternative lighting styles with Profoto RFi Softboxes has been archived. If you’re tired of using the same old lighting setups and need some new inspiration, definitely take a look at this free resource.

The webinar lasts for 40 minutes, during which John Williamson demonstrates three alternative lighting scenarios using the new Profoto RFi softboxes.

Understanding basic portrait lighting techniques is important to every photographer. It is the foundation from which the advanced techniques are built. Alternative lighting techniques can also be as important as unique approaches can create unique lighting styles.

    Do you know if a Nikon SB-900 flash mounted on a Pocket Wizard Flex TT5 will fit in the RFI Speedring Adapter for Nikon Flash?

      Hi Francisco,

      It works, but in all honesty, not perfectly. The flash doesn’t get positioned right in the middle of the speedring as it should.

        Thank you very much Fredrik for your answer. I believe that the flash will be positioned a little high in the speedring opening. Is this position will affect the quality of the light coming from an attached light modifier, such as the Octa 3’? I would like to make the jump to Profoto light modifiers, mostly because of the build and light quality.

          Hi Francisco,

          Yes, the speedlight will be positioned just above the center of the ring. This will have a slight affect on the light quality. If you measure the light output on the surface of the softbox there will be a small difference between upper and lower side. For portrait photography you will hardly see the difference.

          I can also recommend you to read the Nikonians review of this speedring together with the RFi 3′ Octa.
