Today, another look at flash modifiers for you.
Here’s a smaller snoot (again, I am using the excellent range of Honl Photo modifiers):
This also makes a small well-delineated light area, but it is larger then the one from the large snoot.
A small reflector. This allows me to direct the light somewhat; it also softens the light a little:
And a large reflector:
Observant readers will notice this is the same device as the long snoot – just not rolled up. This particular one is a CTO version – “colour temperature orange”, giving it a warm, tungsten-like bounce.
And finally a small portable softbox (this is the Honl “Traveller 8” – there is also a larger version):
This creates wonderful, soft light.
Without a softbox, this would have looked like this:
See that annoying side shadow? The softbox would have taken care of that.
