This 22″/56cm Beauty Dish with a Bowens S-Type Mount lives up to its potential by offering a bridge between softboxes and umbrellas that yields a soft but crisp light with snappy contrast and a textural quality. The secret is a built-in deflector that bounces the flash’s direct output backwards, filling the shallow dish and casting a wide beam of soft light forward. Also gives the image of a contrasted look adding a very dramatic effect. It can also be used in combination with a diffuser or a honeycomb grid (also known as an Egg Crate), which are both included with this beauty dish, allowing for further modification of the light output. When the honeycomb grid is not used, the light bounces into the back of the dish, reflects around the sides and then out the front. But by using the grid, when the light reaches the edge of the dish, it is channelled forward instead of going outwards. This means that it is much more focused on one spot. It is essential when working in confined spaces or close to a background. It can also produce stunning, dramatic lighting with very hard shadow transfer edges. The white diffuser makes the light more gentle. It has a white interior which gives a warmer, softer look compared to that of a silver beauty dish. Also light fall is less dramatic with a white interior, so highlights are reduced. Note: Beauty Dishes are not recommended for use with continuous tungsten lights over 300 watts.

Ideal for portraits, wedding, fashion and beauty photography. Creates a unique lighting pattern on the subject offering a round catch light in the eye of the subject. Direct, but not harsh.
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).
Provides a focused light source without a hotspot in the middle. It delivers a semi-hard light which is softer than an on-camera flash or strobe unit but harder than a softbox.
The secret is a built-in deflector that bounces the flash’s direct output backwards, filling the shallow dish and casting a wide beam of soft light forward.
