The usual theory for softbox placement is that it should be in front of your model but with a larger softbox you have a lot more flexibility. In this video Gavin Hoey demonstrates what happens when your softbox moves from in front to behind your subject. Using an EZbox 16×48″ stripbox and keeping the model a fixed distance from the studio background, Gavin suggests four possible placements and takes you through how it affects his shot. He then puts that theory to the test in a portrait shoot.
