Our BE Octobox Light Kit is a simple, easy to set up light kit perfect for portrait photographers. It offers soft, evenly diffused light, is completely portable and assembles in just a few minutes. Below is a step-by-step guide to setting up your new Octobox Light Kit!
Step 1: Push In Center Ring
Use your hand to push in the center ring, opening the Octobox. The ring should fit snug around the inner light bulb socket. We recommend setting the Octobox on the ground to stabilize the box during this process.
Step 2: Set Up the Light Stand
Push legs out slightly and raise the center stand, then twist the wingnut to secure the legs in place.
Step 3: Attach Octobox to Light Stand
The Octobox has two wingnuts, one that secures the box to the light stand and one that adjusts the position of the light. Use these wingnuts to secure the Octobox to the top of the light stand.
Step 4: Insert Light Bulb
Our Octobox kit comes with two, 85W Fluorescent Light Bulbs. Screw the light bulbs into the socket of the Octobox. If you need extra light bulbs, you can order them here.
Step 5: Attach Light Diffuser
Use the Velcro to attach the white light diffuser to the outside of the Octobox. Repeat the process for the second light, and then you're ready to start photographing!
