Photogenic 902038 overview

  • 1Description

This unique barndoor - fresnel lens set is specifically designed for use on the Photogenic 6" reflector. Combined with the shaping of a barndoor, is a lens that focuses the light output, and controls the positioning with more precision.

Barndoors, Snoots, Grids, and Filters are essential accessories for any lighting system. These devices alter the shape, intensity, or color of the light output from your flash heads. Consider them as a painter would a brush, or a sculptor would a knife, or chisel.

Use of a barndoor set will result in a shaft of light, when it is attached to the front of the reflector of your light source. The size of the shaft of light will be determined by the opening of the leaves, and the distance of the light from the subject. Rotating the barndoor set will determine the angle of the shaft of light.

Control light output with more precision with the built on fresnel lens.

    2 Leaf Barndoor & Fresnel Lens for Photogenic 8050-MA is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would not go without it. I've used one of these for... 40 years. I teach portraiture and I recommend them to my students. What it does is disperses the light then focuses it downward in a soft spot. WITHOUT IT - you will get areas that are hot and weaker light on the edges. You'll get rather hard, harsh, inconsistentlight from a typical hair light. (mono light). You can use a softbox (but they hang so low - most don't have 14+ ft ceilings. Also they're a bit to soft and drab. This softens and diffuses the light, then focus's it downward into a nice circle which is about 10ft in diameter at the floor. (at say 8ft distance). The subjects head is typically around 3-4 ft from the lens. This allows good even coverage for couples, groups of 3 and even 4. It's still has a good specular quality (unlike a softbox) but is every even so as not to have HOT SPOTS in the hair. See examples ALL in studio work uses one of these on my website.
