BeautyDish

 

BEAUTYDISH

Q. I’ve read in a lot of your other threads that you use a beauty dish quite
often but usually it is a gridded beauty dish.  Is this a specialized beauty
dish that accepts a grid or do all beauty dishes accept a grid ( looking through
B&H the only gridded dish I saw was a Hensel).  For example I just
got a Alien bee beauty dish, can a grid be used with this and how.

I have heard that there is a focus distance to a beauty dish that is ideal is
that true?


1) you can use an Speedotron grid on a Alienbee 22inch beauty dish, may take
a tweak to the clips but it fits, also on hensel 22inch dishes, again tweak
the springclips t stay on tight.

2) there is not a true point of focus, but a relative focus area, the shape
will focus the light somewhat and I have often found that a great range for
great effect on a BD with no direct light from center is anywhere from 1 foot
away to 4 1/2 feet away, beyond that and its fine but begins to lose the effect
of it being a beautydish and becomes more of an umbrella, except that a gird
can make the light into a smaller tighter area than a huge sprad of an umbrella.

Because I know its coming I will give some more info on them.


Below are a few examples, all with grid several different dishes, I am not a
huge fan of an unmodified mola, the spedotron blackline dish is my favorite
followed by a hensel silver with deflector, not the center grided one or at
least not using a center grid,  I do not use dishes without overall grids
unless I am outside using it as a sun from far away.   Broncolor makes
a nice one also.

As I said I only use them with grids, without it you might as well use an umbrella,
much cheaper and lighter.  The speedotron has a diffused center I would
place a mirror behind it reflecting the light back at the head and a black circle
to cut the center so no light comes through, you could also leave a white center
once the mirror back is in place light cannot go through anyway.   many
other brands of dishes including alienbee are 22inch diameter and as such the
speedotron grid will fit any 22inch,  you may have to adjust the clips
to hold it tighter or just weld it one I woudl it never comes off and if I needed
it without one outside I woudl use something else instead hmm
I also  have a few custom made with tighter degrees but the speedotron
is cheap, easy and works great no need to have any made unless you have some
lighting companies looking to do something for you.

I like to control spill, flags can but the grids are very directional more so
than a flag or barndoors or snoot even if its a tight grid.  I have grids
on almost everything except umbrellas, fresnels, and obscure things like likesticks,
globes, and glowing objects, I use them on Softboxes, Octobanks, octoboxes,
striplights, lightbars, even my snoots have a grid.  I would grid my grid
if I could,  I think I have a control issue I need to deal with…..

Now I am including many samples, mainly because I figure if I gave some examples
it would show some range of a BD without a major variation in photographer style
vast difference is technique or majot model quality location shifts that cloud
the issue more, so hopefully you get more of a feel for what the dish can do
for you.

Q. Do you have a lighting combination you like to use with
a beauty light? I want to get a beauty dish but cant decide between the profoto
silver or white, i was told to get silver and I can add a white diffuser sock
for when I wanted the softer white effect is this true?

I never use the sock, but no its not the same, the sock diffuses the light
and spreads it out more, if you use a grid the silver has more specular punch
and snap and the white a bot softer snap to it but both will follow a grid path
well and tight a diffuser will all but kill the grid effect and control

You can always paint a white with mettalic silver or a silver you can sand down
and paint white if you really have a need and desire for them.

And what the silver dish does in a more general sense compared to the white,
in non technical terms, (depending on which silver, smooth or rough, patterned
or bumpy etc) is it creates high and brighter sources of light from the mirrored
surfaces as compared to the less bright reflections out so when adjusting for
the light to keep the highlights you lose some of the lower end and get a more
vast shift from highlight to shadow creating deeper shadows and bright highlights.
A white dish has a more uniform light reflecting outward creating uniform highlughts
and shadows (within reason) which acts as the highlughts and fill on the surface
of the skin thereby softeneing the shadows.

That is obviously non technical and it is designed more to help people get a
vision in their head of what is happening with the dish.

 

Q. Would there be any way to recreate that lighting without a beauty dish
and a grid?

The studio that I am currently using is quite limited, with only 4 strobes.
1 320, 2 500s, and 1 1600.  Oh, and one fresnel.   We don’t
have any barn doors that fit the lights we use, so trying to stop spill is
nearly impossible without rigging up some kind of foam core.

Is there a way to get comparable results with limited equipment?

NO,  if you could do it with limited equipment there would be no point
to them still being made, this is not like fashion, people in this field buy
based on desired outcome, not look, so if you could get it from another item
you would.  That said a BD without grid is not much different from an umbrella,
and the nearest effect without getting a large reflector and making a BD which
is just making one, would bt to get a small softbox or octodome, say a 19″ to
25inch and then with no diffuser on it mount a mirror in front of the light
and bounce the light back so its basically a beauty dish, than get a grid for
the box.  This will likely cost more than a BD and grid would so I see
no point.  Many people never used a BD and have great stuff, if you look
around my main site there is plenty more there that is not done with a BD and
its all OK looking for not using a BD and grid to get it wink
so its not needed, its an option that some use rarely, some never some often
and some shoudl have them taken away and there camera replaced with a brick
so as to not cause my eyes to bleed when seeing what they produced sad
but in any event use what you have available and make it work how you like it,
you will find that its SO NOT THE TOOL, the tools do nothing but give you some
options and make things easier or harder to do, and basically they give you
something to keep you busy playing with so you don’t get bored and fall into
the same old routine everyday. hmm

And I love frensels,  I have broncolor, speedotron and hensel ones, in
6inch, 4 inch, 8 inch 12 inch and 14 inch they are all killers!!!!  very
cool, and at up to 6400ws on the brons and 4800ws on the speedos I can light
up the moon when I need a full one  wink

《關於婚紗攝影的幾項關鍵性思考:》

一.拍照現場的系統式進行步驟:

1.依主題分類進行,分數個主題,按其相關性依序拍完.如此,既能降低紊亂遺漏,也能緊湊工序,增添效率及流暢度.
  (通常一系列以五張為限,以免重複或過於雷同而顯單調.)

2.主題分類法:
 
  舉例:
  a.呈現入鏡者之氣質、性格乃至體型特徵的特寫鏡頭
  b.兩人的邂逅故事
  c.兩人嚮往的婚姻生活
  d.最鍾愛的影劇情節及其場景畫面
  e.愛去的旅遊地
  f........

3.作用及目的:

  設計好主題,入鏡者才會有所投入,也有情節及情境可供其發揮情感/反映其感受(新郎尤然,蓋一般情形下,男生常被當活道具,自己也常矇矇然不清楚於拍攝現場之任務為何,
  故而常以一號表情勉強應付,要不就以無奈表情任攝影師擺布)

二.唯美乃婚紗拍照的最高準則;而浪漫喜悅與格調高尚則是施行指標.

三.如何幫新人挑禮服?

   準則:拍照婚紗絕對不同於婚宴禮服.

   婚宴禮服講究的是華麗搶眼/氣質出眾,以與宴會排場相互輝映;而拍照婚紗講究的是:簡潔俐落富優美線條,以襯托新人之個性與風格.
   故而:
  
   1.須配合新人意願和其體態風格.
     比如談吐打扮都備極時髦的新人類,就不一定須拘泥於偏古典款式;而可嘗試略開放的/露腿顯胸的新潮造型.而言行略拘謹保守的文靜女子則刻意呈顯其嫻雅之姿即乃重點...

   2.依內外景而因地制宜:
     比方,出海灘外景,著八片裙/露肩款,適合奔跑/跳躍動作等激情浪漫情境.
     比方,出綠野曠景,穿長裙擺配蕾絲款,可盤捲成美麗圖案襯托美麗倩影
     比方,巴洛克老建築為背景最好配典雅古典風格禮服;現代玻璃幃幕大樓為背景則另配現代華麗感禮服

   3.挑禮服訣竅:
     a.出外景,第一須考量的是:禮服以輕便易活動者為宜.太重/裙擺過長/裁製過緊/手臂無法舉高者皆不宜.
     b.鑲亮片/縫裝飾寶石/易皺易變形者亦不可.
     c.濁色系或色彩濃黯者不佳;粉淡薄色系者效果也不好;最宜者乃顏色乾淨/色系鮮明,拍照效果最好!

觀當今最速的殺球影片,兼談生活諸藝的訣竅及架勢... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CeG3oASihc0&feature=player_detailpage <iframe width="640" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/CeG3oASihc0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> <iframe width="640" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/poveBoGIV_w?feature=player_embedded" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=poveBoGIV_w http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=H4hwyHdOVho <iframe width="640" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/H4hwyHdOVho?feature=player_embedded" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> 懂門道的羽球高手諒必知道:羽球功力精深與否的一大指標,就是打球聲響的宏亮與否----通常,高手擊起球來均是劈聲不斷;響聲愈大,球速也愈驚人 如上貼的第一二隻影片中的傅海峰殺球即乃其中顯例. 傅,乃當今羽球的雙打第一高手(拿過四次世界盃冠軍及倫敦奧運金盃);殺球聲勢真有嚇死人之威,其速之迅也穩居人類球類運動之王,2006年蘇迪曼盃殺出時速332公里驚天一擊;據稱距今無人能破. (網球洛迪克的246公里實在望塵莫及).

職業選手打球特別厲害,固然乃資質特佳又兼長年苦練所致,但其間是否有不足與門外人道的訣竅或法門,因而起的某種關鍵性作用呢?

我覺得有,而且舉凡所有人類的技能與藝業,都必有隱藏於其核心的此中秘笈.

各位可看傅海峰的殺球慢動作,便可知其中的一個法門,便是他前臂的一個玄妙的逆時鐘翻轉動作;羽球術語稱之為“內旋”. 事實上,羽球擊球的神髓便是全落在這內旋外旋的前臂翻轉訣竅.

先起個頭,餘話後敘.
