Fotodiox Pro Beauty Dish with Bowens Speedring for Bowens, Calumet, Interfit and Compatible - All Metal, Soft White Interior
The perfect accessory for the portrait photographer, the Fotodiox beauty dish uniquely diffuses light to provide high output with moderate feathering. Unlike a softbox or a reflector which has an "illuminating" surface, the beauty dish has a circle of light with an opaque center and an internal light shield that allows bounce-only lighting. How does the beauty dish compare to a softbox? As the beauty dish is smaller, it will result in less-soft shadows. It will also provide moderate round catch lights in the eyes, where a softbox will yield larger rectangular catch lights. Fotodiox beauty dishes use a parabolic reflector in 80° angle to focus light towards a wrapped area.
The Fotodiox beauty dish also come with a diffusion 'sock' for further controlling the sharpness of shadows. You can use soft diffuser cover and honeycomb grid to further change the light pattern, creating a wrapped, contrasted look, which adds a very dramatic effect. The optional 50° Honeycomb Grid contains the light to a more tubular pattern, for more of a spot light effect without light spill.
