The 42 cm (16.5") Studio Silver Beauty Dish In Photography with S-Type Smart Bracket is a high-quality modifier which provides a soft, gentle light source from your lights with a little more contrast compared to a softbox. The soft yet contrasting light is perfect for accentuating facial features and helps to pull each single detail available from your subject, all whilst giving a unique catch light in the eyes of your subject. The S-Type fitting that comes as standard allows it to be used with a wide range of different lighting options and brands. This is the ideal modifier to provide a unique, high-drama look to your photos which makes it great for shooting beauty, makeup, fashion or portrait still-life photography.

Highly Reflective Silver Interior

This 42cm Studio Silver Beauty Dish In Photography attaches to the mount on the front of your flash and encapsulates the bulb to allow light to fall on the highly reflective silver interior. This Design Spreads the light evenly for maximum efficiency. As the interior is silver and therefore much more reflective, specular highlights of the subject are more pronounced and detailed, perfect for drawing out and accentuating the facial features of your subject.

42cm Beauty Dish In Photography with Wrap-Around Light

The deflector dish reflects the light back onto the interior silver surface of the beauty dish, helping to cover the entire interior evenly with light, to create a light that wraps around the subject. This means that the beauty dish is an ideal modifier for portrait photography as it helps to perfectly surround the subject in light.

Contrasting Light for Feature Accentuation

Due to the shape of the 42cm Studio Silver Beauty Dish In Photography and the fact that the light bounces around the interior, it helps create light with more contrast compared to using a Softbox. The silver interior of the beauty dish creates a cooler and more contrasting light and look compared to the softer and more natural-looking light created by its white counterpart.

Round Catchlights

The round shape of the beauty dish also helps to create pleasing catchlights in the eyes of the subject that replicates a natural light source such as the sun, making it ideal for beauty and portrait photography.

Shadow Reducing Diffuser Cap

Included with the 42cm Studio Silver Beauty Dish In Photography is a diffuser cap, which simply slides over the outer edge, and this further helps to further soften the light being produced and to reduce any unwanted shadows on your subject. The extra diffusion will help the light fall more naturally onto your subject, ideal for beauty and portrait shots when you are trying to get the most accurate look from your subject.

Light Spill Reduction Honeycomb grid

The honeycomb grid clips onto the outer edge of the beauty dish which helps to narrow and better angle the light source, reducing any unwanted light spill and potential loss of light.

High-Quality Aluminium Beauty Dish In Photography

The high-quality aluminium construction of the beauty dish is strong and durable, helping to create a dependable modifier that will keep working well for the foreseeable future, ideal for studio-based photography. It requires no further construction or assembly as it simply attaches directly to the amount of your flash, reducing any unnecessary loss of time during your shoot.

42cm Bowens S-Type Studio Silver Beauty Dish

The 42cm Studio Silver Beauty Dish features a Bowens S-Type fitting speedring which fits our range of flash lighting and is also the most common fitting currently available on the market, allowing it to be suitably compatible with a wide range of lighting options.

Smart Speedlite Bracket

Included in the 42cm Studio Silver Beauty Dish In Photography with S-Type Smart Bracket kit is our Smart Speedlite Bracket. What this bracket does is allows you to connect any Bowens S-Type fitting modifier to it which then makes it compatible with speedlites and smaller flashes such as the PIKA200 and PIKA200 PRO. This is an incredibly useful addition to beauty and fashion photographers who may find themselves on location with a small battery-powered flash but still want to achieve a soft and gentle light.

The beauty dish is a high-quality and widely used modifier in the photography industry, helping to create a soft and gentle light source. The design helps to create a dramatic and unique lighting style without flaw, helping to create eye-catching images for beauty, makeup fashion or portrait photography.
