Product Highlights
  • Soft but Crisp Light Quality
  • Offers Contrast and Texture
  • Natural Catchlights in Eyes
  • Optional Mounts for Most Studio Flash Brands

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.

                I used this yesterday on a couple of photo shoots. It works great with great disbursemnt over the subjects face. I use it with elincnrom heads. Make sure you order the adaptor. With the adaptor you an also move the dish between heads.

                  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.
