I have an SB910 and an SB700 I am using with a D800. I shoot motorcycles with lots of reflective surfaces. Shooting indoors I have been using shoot through umbrellas but get distinctive umbrella shaped reflections. So, I am thinking softboxes would be a better choice. Right?

What is the largest size softbox I can use as a portable with the Speedlights? I have light stands with umbrella mounts. Any particular brand or style to recommend?

Thanks, Stephen
