This Photography Studio Beauty Dish helps give your photos a magazine high fashion look and would be a great addition to your studio. The beauty dish is great for catching good light. It creates a dead zone in the center of the picture, giving you the look of a magazine.
The idea of the beauty dish is similar to other diffusion ideas - the more diffusion you put in your light, the softer the image is. This idea, widely used in photography studios, includes the softbox, beauty dishes, and the reflector disc, which all are used for very similar purposes.
The beauty dish is very unique in the way that it diffuses light. Unlike a softbox or a reflector which has an "illuminating" surface, the beauty dish has a circle of light with a hazy center. The beauty dish is also unique in the shape of light it makes. The light is doughnut shaped – a round circle with a hole in the middle. This shadows less light on the subject while making the back shadows less harsh. If it is close to the subject you will get a doughnut-like shadow on your background.
The Honeycomb Grid could be easily removed and attached. It narrows down the spread of light from your fixture and reflector, providing a dramatic effect.
This is the perfect accessory for the portrait photographer. The beauty dish has an internal light shield that allows bounce-only lighting. This provides high output making it a perfect soft light source for portraits. It will also provide moderate round catch lights in the eyes where a softbox will yield larger rectangular catch lights. It also comes with a front cover diffuser for softer looks. This Beauty dish is made of 100% aluminum with superior design. Ideal for all flashes with hotshoe mounts.
