Description What Is Included Instruction Video / Manual (Click for instructions)
This CowboyStudio Photography Studio Beauty Dish helps give your photos a magazine high fashion look and would be a great addition to your studio. The beauty dish is great for catching good light. It creates a dead zone in the center of the picture, giving you the look of a magazine.

The idea of the beauty dish is similar to other diffusion ideas - the more diffusion you put in your light, the softer the image is. This idea, widely used in photography studios, includes the softbox, beauty dishes, and the reflector disc, which all are used for very similar purposes.

The beauty dish is very unique in the way that it diffuses light. Unlike a softbox or a reflector which has an "illuminating" surface, the beauty dish has a circle of light with a hazy center. The beauty dish is also unique in the shape of light it makes. The light is doughnut shaped – a round circle with a hole in the middle. This shadows less light on the subject while making the back shadows less harsh. If it is close to the subject you will get a doughnut-like shadow on your background.

    • 16" or 22" or 27" Beauty Dish

    1. Place the beauty dish around your light source and close the clamps to secure it in position.
    2. Position the beauty dish on either the left or the right side of the subject to fully illuminate one half. Adjust the height of the light and angle of the beauty dish to get the light exactly how you desire.
    3. Position a reflector on the opposite side of the beauty dish at 90 degrees to eliminate any unwanted shadows created by the intense light. Make adjustments if necessary by changing the angle of the reflector in relation to the beauty dish.
    4. Take several practice shots at several different angles. Examine the practice shots and make adjustments to the beauty dish and the reflector, if necessary.
    5. Experiment with the distance of the beauty dish in relation to the subject and the angle at which it shines the light to create dramatic shadow effects or to eliminate shadows completely. Adjust the reflector on the opposite end to match the lighting effect from the beauty dish or experiment with reflector positioning to create unique lighting effects.

I have been buying from Cowboy Studio for years.  They ship fast, definitely put the customer first, and have great quality products.  They are my go-to whenever I need equipment.
