The narrow profile of Wescott's 16 x 30" Apollo Strip Softbox makes it an ideal rim, hair light or accent light. The recessed front edge of the box provides a degree of directionality that can be intensified with the included 40-degree fabric grid, which narrows the beam spread while eliminating spill light.
The output remains soft and flattering with the type of control you'd normally get from a reflector. Alternatively, if you need a harder light simply remove the front diffuser. Since the Apollo Strip is built on an umbrella frame, it provides for quick setup and equally quick break-down. The Apollo Strip mounts vertically or horizontally to suit your subject.
