The Beauty Dish Outdoors

cierra_2360cIf photography is light, then lighting is everything. It’s the way in which the photographer manipulates his or her light that sets them apart from the others and distinguishes their style as an artist.

I use a Beauty Dish exclusively as my light modifier of choice, now indoors and out. The Beauty Dish magically enhances skin and makeup pigments, making it the perfect choice as a main or primary fill, especially with portraiture and obviously with makeup photography. The design versatility of e-Photo’s new 16″ Beauty Dish can be utilized to achieve stunning results every single time. Now adding the 28″ Fotodiox portable/studio kit Beauty Dish to my arsenal I am ready for any situation indoors or out. These kits designed for speed lights are usually very easily adaptable to your studio equipment. Simply remove the speed-light bracket and they mount right up to my Alien Bees. The ePhoto 16″ and the Fotodiox 28″ Dishes both do. If you are not using Bees, you should do a little research to ensure they will meet your own needs.

In chapter I, (Shooting With a Beauty Dish) we learned all about the Beauty Dish history, design qualities and the reflective qualities of several different Beauty Dish’s in general. Now we are going to concentrate on utilizing the Beauty Dish as a fill light in harsher lighting conditions.

The principles of shooting outdoors are identical to that of a studio. The environmental challenges can be infinite and extreme, but the pain of it all is so rewarding once you have pulled off that perfect shot. Nothing from the studio can compare to that killer outdoor shot.
