In this Blog, we discuss the differences between Silver and White beauty dishes, and offer a visual explanation of these Beauty Dishes.
The Beauty Dish is a very popular choice for Fashion and beauty photographers, and is also becoming a popular choice for portrait photographers. The beauty dish produces a soft light, with a little more contrast compared to the light from a softbox, which is great for accentuating facial features, and pulling out more details in your image. Beauty Dishes also produce pleasing perfectly round catch lights in the eyes of your subjects.
Beauty dishes produce their unique light qualities by bouncing the light from the back of the deflector dish (located in front of the flash-tube) into a parabolic reflector, which then sends the light forward, producing a contrasty yet soft wrapping light.
This Beauty Dish has a Silver interior, which produces a cooler, slightly more contrasty look, compared to that of its white counterpart. Since the interior surface is reflective compared to that of a white beauty dish, specular highlights are more pronounced.
The Beauty Dish comes supplied with a shower-cap styled diffuser to make the light even softer.
This beauty dish has a user-changeable adapter ring, giving you the ability to attach it to many different studio flash systems such as Elinchrom, Bowens etc. All you need to do is to order an additional adapter ring from us, so you can use this beauty dish with your new brand of flash system.
PLEASE NOTE: This beauty dish will not include a honeycomb grid.
