If I could bring just one light source and modifier to a portrait shoot it would be a big flash and a fairly large softbox. This I learned from the estimable Alan Thornton. The operative word here is "soft." Put that baby a few inches from your subject and you get the roundest and, yes, "softest" effect imaginable. Here the lovely Mizahn is caressed by a Profoto Flash and Chimera Medium Softbox.
