The Impact Fashion Beauty Dish Kit is an ideal choice for a main light for portraits, fashion, head shots or advertising work.
The VS-LCD400 Monolight has a digital readout and accepts S-type monolight reflectors and head accessories such as the included Impact Beauty Dish. Power is adjustable in 1/10 stop increments, from full to 1/8 power over a 4 stop range. Its 150W modeling lamp can be set to proportional so that you can easily preview your lighting effects or adjusted manually to any light intensity that you wish. An air cushioned light stand provides protection from impact damage while adjusting its height.
The Impact 22" Beauty Dish Reflector provides a bridge between a softbox and an umbrella, yielding a soft but crisp light with snappy contrast and a textural quality that flatters makeup on models and accentuates character in portrait subjects. The secret is a built-in deflector that bounces the flash's direct output backwards, filling the shallow dish and casting a wide beam of soft light forward. For an even softer effect slip the included Diffuser Sock over the front of the Beauty Dish. The sock also masks hot spots that might be visible in reflective objects. The provided honeycomb grid offers yet another option, adding control and directionality to the light source while thwarting spill light that might otherwise compromise your background lighting.
You might be surprised at how many photo assignments you can handle with a compact, lightweight monolight like the Impact Digital Monolight 400W/s (120VAC). It's got 400w/s of power in an easily transportable package, and light output that can be varied in 1/10 stop stages over a 4-stop range, accessible through the digital readout. The 150W modeling light can be coupled to the flash, getting brighter or dimmer to match the actual light output, or independently set to the level you want. The monolight accepts S-type monolight reflectors and head accessories. It also has a limited Auto Dump function, firing the strobe when you reset to a different power level (so the strobe is automatically set to the correct setting for the next flash). A built-in optical slave allows the monolight to be triggered using another flash. Perfect for portraits, small still-lifes, and much more.
The beauty dish reflector is a legendary light shaping tool popularized by fashion and portrait photographers. This Impact 22" Beauty Dish Reflector lives up to its potential by offering a bridge between softboxes and umbrellas that yields a soft but crisp light with snappy contrast and a textural quality that flatters makeup on models and accentuates character in portrait subjects. The secret is a built-in deflector that bounces the flash's direct output backwards, filling the shallow dish and casting a wide beam of soft light forward. The Beauty Dish fits most major brands with the separate purchase of an adapter.
The Beauty Dish can also be used in combination with a diffuser sock or honeycomb grid, which allows for further modification of the light output.
This Impact 40° Honeycomb Grid for 22" Beauty Dish Reflector alters the shape and light output of the reflector by tunneling the light forward into a narrower 40° beam. The beauty dish reflector is a legendary light shaping tool popularized by fashion and portrait photographers. The grid offers slightly increased contrast, directionality, and spill light control. It's an ideal tool for achieving Rembrandt-like lighting effects. This grid is designed exclusively for an Impact Beauty Dish.
This 22" Diffuser Sock from Impact is a 22" nylon fabric light softener ringed with strong elastic for a snug fit around standard-sized light head reflectors. In addition, it is also ideal for use with 20 and 20.5" diffusers. This convenient diffuser softens light output by creating a larger light surface across the face of the reflector, bathing your subject in a diffuse light that's perfect for portrait or beauty photography and video. It installs in seconds, and is a handy way to quickly diffuse a light source, when setting up a softbox or using a handheld diffuser is impractical.
Diffuser Socks are stackable, offering the capability to increase the diffusion effect by adding additional socks over the first. Each layer of diffusion reduces light output by 1-stop. The nylon fabric is heat resistant and won't yellow or burn from the heat of your flash, studio strobe modeling light, or a cool light source, like LED or fluorescent lights.
