A few days ago my new softbox light arrived, I was so happy, I even played with how it worked on the ground, etc. I was a little unhappy because the light wouldn’t screw into a tripod, so I figured, ok, there must be a trick to this, that’s why Adorama was trying to sell me a light stand, so I bought a light stand. Today the light stand arrives and I feel like a monkey with a wrench. I know its useful, I’ve seen others using one and know it can work, but I can’t figure out how to get my light on to the stand. I have tried turning my head, the stand and the light every way I can think of. It took me 10 minutes to realize that the thing that came in the bag with the light is NOT an adapter, but instead a handle. Woohoo me! So now I’m still desperately trying to figure things out, attempting to not have to spend any more money on this particular issue, but I guess if I have to I will, although, usually when I throw money at a problem, I at least know what the solutions are and how they will work, if only in a conceptual way (don’t understand internal combustion that well, but I get that you add gas and you get vroom!). I shall keep monkeying with the light stand and see if I can make magic happen. Grrr… so frustrating, and no one provides freaking manuals.
