  • Avoid Red Eye

This Erin Manning PocketBox Educational Flash Softbox Kit from Wescott is designed to be used with any off-camera flash. The PocketBoxes set up in seconds, soften harsh light and eliminate red eye. The kit provides three compact softboxes of different sizes and shapes to familiarize you with the light characteristics of each and how their reflections appear in the eyes of your subjects or other reflective objects.

Learn alongside Erin Manning on the included Educational DVD as she takes you on multiple photo shoots to explain the basics about on-camera and off-camera flash. Each lesson guides you step-by-step through camera operation, flash settings, posing and capturing candid shots of your subjects. You'll also see what can go wrong on a photo shoot and how to remedy the problem. If you've felt intimated by this equipment in the past, don't worry! Erin's down-to-earth teaching style makes everything easy to understand.

The softboxes include an ultra-reflective silver interior that maximizes light output, removable inner diffusion panel that spreads light for a soft, even output, durable black backing that prevents spill light and soft grip panels to help safely secure the PocketBox to a flash.

      While I find the round and large square diffusers to be more effective for general softening and wrapping light, all do a good job at what the are intended to do. I do find that they slip off the flash head eventually, but that seems to be an issued with all modifiers that are not custom manufactured for a specific flash head. I will continue using them and time on on location and cannot bring off-camera light.

      Works pretty well but hard to get on the flash 'straight'. Fairly good quality especially for the great price. Sometimes feels like I need 3 hands to attach. Works well once on the flash. Barely fits on my Oly 50R flash. Instructional DVD is pretty worthless unless you don't even know what a flash is used for.

          Great soft boxes for lighting small areas, up-close shots, or two people up close and close together. Also great for small product photography, or for plants. Having 3 shapes is great. They are easy to attach to flash, with a strap wrapping around and attaching with Velcro. Well made. I definitely recommend the kit.

            Use for portrait photography for diffused light with off-or-on-camera flash for one person or perhaps two if close together (with the rectangular softbox turned horizontal for 2 people). Nice to light small area, like face(s) where you want the light to fall of and not be bright on the full person or a large area. Three different sized softboxes is nice.

              I like the size and weight of these soft boxes. They are big enough to spread light enough to wrap around most things I shoot. There are not too heavy to be mobile. I like that they are stiff enough to hold their shape.

              Having the 3 options makes it easy to determine what is going to work in any lighting situation. These pocketboxes are east to use and the tutorial that comes with them is a great primer for people with no experience but is too basic for a professional. However, I'm somewhere in the middle and found it very helpful.

                I purchased this for a photo shoot where I knew I would have to use flash. Was quite worried about taking flash pictures as I am not a huge fan of them. However, this kit was just what I needed. All soft boxes were easy to attach to flash and the educational DVD gave some really good tips. Highly recommend it!

                They work great. It is hard to keep creases out of them though. the flash opening also seems to be a little too big for the Nikon SB-900. But, they still work fine for what they are.

                          Well made, 3 heads offer nice versatility. Attaching to flash can be tricky at first and boxes don't fully expand, but after a few uses (and some tugging once attached) the system is pretty good for the price. The large box is particularly useful for larger groups and spaces. The DVD, however, is pretty basic for anyone who's used flash before.

                            I use this product for my photo shoots, but I actually don't just use it at home, I take it to location shoots with me as well! It's easy to set up, easy to use and the training videos were awesome! So far I have no complaints about the product at all!!!

                              Mostly these Soft Boxes will be used for Macro work,with a occasional portrait thrown in. The four different size Soft boxes covers lots of situations and they take up very little space,plus there weight is light. The DVD that comes with the kit is not so great.

                                Perfect for when you need to travel out with only one flash unit. The 3 softboxes easily fold up and all fit into one included pouch. Ideal for strobists!
