I have a confession to make. I have a substance abuse problem – I’m addicted to light modifiers. I know, I know, it’s not very sexy right? I mean, most women are addicted to shoes and handbags, but shoes and handbags don’t do it for me like a good softbox does.
If you ask any woman why she needs 300 pairs of shoes she will be able to justify each purchase. Ditto for my light modifier collection.
My addiction started out as something fairly harmless. It started with a small purchase that I made with friends one night. No harm done, but then I started to buy gear alone.

I made a date with Creativity and Inspiration. It had been a while since we’d hung out, so I invited them to dinner.
When the day of my dinner date arrived, I wasn’t feeling it. Normally it takes me two seconds to decide what to wear on a date but everything I tried on looked wrong. I was also having a bad hair day and a massive zit was camping on my left cheek, just below the large dark bags that had set up shop under my eyes.
I yawned for the 20th time that afternoon. For a moment, I contemplated crawling into bed for a nap. I’d been feeling so tired those last few weeks but I knew if I got into bed now I’d miss my date and I’d didn’t want to let Creativity and Inspiration down. They were . . .
