For a very long time I have always wanted to have the photography gears that professional photographers use. In my journey of trying to acquire those gears I found out that the brand that the professionals use aren’t cheap. Same reason why I have always been looking for the “Cheaper Allternative”. The Yongnuo YN-460 Flashgun & Yongnuo CTR-301P remote flash triggers are just some of the cheaper alternatives that I was able to acquire. And today, another I finally received an addition to my cheaper alternative photography gears, The Phottix Easy-up 60x90cm (42″) Umbrella Softbox with Grid. Compared to the more famous Westcott 28 in. Recessed Front Apollo Softbox, the Phottix easy-up softbox is 50% cheaper. I never got a chance to see a Westcott Apollo in person so I cannot really compare them in detail. Anyway, below is a sample shot using the Phottix Easy-up softbox. I must say this is a good bang for the buck.
