Lightsphere® NEW GENERATION FIVE!
The Lightsphere® Collapsible™ is an invaluable tool for all types of photographers, providing a soft omni-directional light for your indoor photography as well as beautiful fill-light for outdoor portraits.
The new speed strap design allows you to easily and securely mount the Lightsphere to your flash. Once in place, you can rest assured that the Lightsphere® Collapsible™ will stay securely in place, offering an equally tight fit for nearly all flash sizes.
The translucent horizontal rings provide soft, even illumination with a minimum loss of power and its collapsible design allows you to fold it flat for easy storage.
Adding the (included) WhiteDome to your Lightsphere will allow you to shoot in situations with a low ceiling where you require less bounce as well as when shooting with the flash pointing directly ahead, you’ll have a beautiful soft shoot through diffuser.
The ChromeDome™ redirects your speedlite and increases the efficiency of light output toward your subject while maintaining the Lightsphere’s® diffusion properties, providing increased efficiency with incredible light quality.
The open top allows non-diffused light to bounce from the ceiling while the chrome plated ‘kicker panel’ reflects light forward and the inverted dome blasts more light into the diffuser – brightening the bowl. Ideal for flash photography of groups. Compatible with the entire Lightsphere® family of diffusers, including the new Lightsphere® Collapsible™ Speed Mount.
Designed to accommodate nearly all speedlight units, the new LightBlade™ Diffuser softens harsh light emitted from power-packed on-camera speedlights, minimizes shadows and reduces glare while creating more accurate skin tones ofr your camera to capture.
The portability and compact size of this combined bounce and shoot-through diffuser make it a perfect solution for event photography, portraits, interiors and product shots.
Dramatic Lighting Kit
Our Dramatic Lighting Kit is for the photographer who wants unlimited versatility for achieving nearly any effect anywhere, at any time. This kit consists of two Speed Snoot Collapsibles (with PowerGrids), a Color Gel Kit, and a custom Gear Bag for easy storage.
The Speed Snoot boasts a newly designed mounting system for quick, easy attaching and detaching along with a collapsible design for easy storage. This two Speed Snoot setup is my personal favorite choice for creating dramatic portraits using two off-camera speedlights. The Speed Snoots blocks light spill and help you keep complete control.
Use one Speed Snoot as a main light and the second as a hair light along with a Color Gel for high-impact portraits.
The color gel tabs fit directly inside, giving you the ability to create dramatic background lighting, dramatic hairlight, or by using radical custom white balancing techniques you can actually change the color of the entire world around your subject. Turn any environment into a professional studio in a matter of seconds, giving you the ultimate in creative control.
WhiteDome™ Double Kit Deal!
Gary here: Whenever I run into people on the street, I hear, “Oh! It’s Gary Fong! That reminds me, I lost my dome!”
Thats because everybody loves the domes – kids love them as frisbees. Dogs love them as chew toys. Gravity loves them. Busboys who think they’re a dessert plate love them. HOWEVER it is a serious piece of equipment!
The WhiteDome™, which comes with the Lightsphere® Universal™ and Collapsible™ product lines, allows you to reduce the amount of light ommited from the top of your Lightsphere®. This is ideal in low hanging ceiling environments where the bounce light is too strong.
ALSO: To achieve an accurate white balance in mixed lighting, use the WhiteDome™ to take a custom reading. (see the video below!)
Produce professional results with a tool you already have on-hand or add another to your gear bag for quick balancing on the go.
