The Octa Soft and Natural Creator Kit was put together by B&H to enhance a mini-studio of lighting equipment with the creative potential available with chroma key technology. The kit includes two 4-socket fluorescent fixtures, eight daylight-balanced spiral fluorescent lamps, two 24" Octa softboxes with 8' air-cushioned light stands and a Savage Photo Creater Kit with a 5x7' green screen, chroma key software and 720 digital backgrounds.
The Octa 4-Socket Fluorescent Fixture from Impact is a four Edison socket base that accepts CFL fluorescent bulbs up to 85W. The back panel features dual rocker switches, each of which control on/off function for two lights allowing the creation of a light ratio. The fixture has a multi-voltage power supply for worldwide use (with addition of optional adapter plug) and has a standard 5/8" receiver for light stands and accessories. The matching Octa Softbox features a highly reflective, pebbled interior and a removable front face that attaches with simple touch-fasteners. In use, it renders the signature wrap-around look that it's well known for, as well as natural circular catch-lights in your subject's eyes. The softboxes are supported by Impact 8' stands that gently lower the lights during height adjustments thanks to their air-cushioning.
Using green screen technology, and the included software, the Savage Photo Creator Kit permits you to take a simple photograph against the included green screen cloth and simply drop in a distant locale or landmark that places your subject far from where you took the photo without ever boarding a plane.
