My studio in a toolbox!

It sounds weird, but it's true.

Take a look there!

In the detachable tray is the more delicate accessories. I leave the flashes partially in their original cases for extra protection.

These accessories are CTO and CTB gels, 3 magnetic honeycombs, 3 Yongnuo 560 III flashes already attached to the flash brackets, 1 Yongnuo 560TX controller, 1 Sekonic L308S flash meter, and a flash bracket with a clamp.

In the toolbox there are 3 lightstands, 2 convertible umbrellas of 36 inches, 1 umbrella shoot-through of 39 inches, 2 extensions to increase the height of my lightstands of 18 inches, and 2 all-purpose clamps.

In the bottom of the toolbox, there is a dark gray velvet 6 feet by 12 feet, 2 gobos with velcro to block partially the light of my flash and 2 snoot.

In each of the bags attached to the toolbox there is 1 softbox of 32 inches by 32 inches with its honeycomb grid and its bracket type S.

As you can see, it's relatively compact and versatile to cover a multitude of situations. For TTL enthusiasts, you can replace the Yongnuo flashes and the transmitter with those of your choice.

Keep shooting and keep learning!

As Rob said - that is impressive - covers all eventualities in a relatively compact, travelproof solution.

Great stuff! Very neat and all ready to go. I'm amazed how much you have packed in there. Having the flashes already on the brackets is great ......I spend at least double the amount of time setting up the flashes than I do on the actual shooting.

I certainly will keep on shooting and learning ... And unpacking, packing, unpacking, packing .........
