How far is it from the flash to the ceiling and ceiling to the subject? If the distance will be close to halved by turning the flash around and adding softbox then you will probably come out with about the same or more light, but have much more control over the angle of the light. The down side is the softbox is going to be very conspicuous and may prove to distracting to the players.

Happy shooting,


Will shoot for fame...fun...food... a heck I'll shoot anytime anywhere.
