The beauty dish reflector is a legendary light shaping tool popularized by fashion and portrait photographers. This Impact 16" Beauty Dish Reflector 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 that flatters makeup on models and accentuates character in portrait subjects. 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. The Beauty Dish fits most major brands with the separate purchase of an adapter.

The Beauty Dish can also be used in combination with a diffuser sock or honeycomb grid, which allows for further modification of the light output.

Note! Beauty Dishes are not recommended for use with continues tungsten lights over 300 watts.

      Comments about Impact 16" Beauty Dish Reflector:

      I use it with my Norman lights and get excellent results on contrast and color balance, the light is contrasty but at the same time diffussed. I wish they would make a case to trasport it to location.
