Product Information
Description

Please see the video below to see a product overview with Travel & Portrait Photographer Tommy Reynolds.

PLEASE NOTE: This video is not full a representation of what is included in this listing as some items are used for demonstration purposes only. Please see the “Specifications” tab for information on what this listing includes.

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, and a removable honeycomb grid, which will reduce the spread of light and give you more control the direction of light.

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.

 

Features:

  • Ideal for portraits, fashion and beauty photography
  • Creates a unique lighting pattern on the subject offering a round catch light in the eye of the subject
  • Silver interior provides a cooler, more contrasted light compared to that of a white beauty dish
  • Interchangeable mount rings so there is no need to buy a whole new beauty dish if you decide to change flash systems in the future.
  • Comes with Diffuser make the light even softer
  • Comes with honeycomb grid to control the spread of light.

Questions & Answers

Answer:

It depends on what you're shooting and the effect that you would like in your photographs.

As a general rule of thumb, smaller modifiers will produce a harsher light, and larger modifiers will produce a softer light. If you're going to be shooting mainly tight head shots, then you may be able to get away with a 42cm beauty dish, however the 55cm and the 70cm will give you more coverage.

Please see video below to see the difference in the quaity of light between the three sizes of Beauty dishes that we do

Answer:

In terms of the softness of light, both types of beauty dish will be similar (provided that both beauty dishes are the same size, and are at the same distance away from your subject), however the Silver Beauty Dish will give you a more contrasty light with more specular highlights. The White Beauty Dish on the other hand, will result in a more natural looking lighting. A Silver Beauty Dish will also accentuate the texture in the skin more than a White Beauty Dish would.

The example photos below were both taken with a 55cm beauty dish with the identical camera settings (ISO 100, f/11 1/125 second). The one on the left was taken with a Silver Beauty Dish, and the one on the right was taken with a White Beauty Dish. Notice how much brighter the highlights are on the left photograph compared to the one on the right.
