RoundFlash™ Ring & Dish

RoundFlash – RingLight & SoftBox is a really cool modifier, I’ve been using as a main light quite a lot for my recent photoshoots! It’s very handy easy to setup, and has really beautiful light especially for closeups! I also use it just as a softbox when I’m outside! Well, I have a few videos and a lot of shots taken with it, check them out below!

Some things to mention about it!

  • Many people would use it as ring flash directly from the camera, well I’ve never done that! For me it is like a softbox and used as off camera flash!
  • The closer you are to your model the more pleasing the light is, and if you get really close, you can have those beautiful catchlights!
  • Don’t worry that it’s light might be not even for the whole surface, it is! Unfortunately you might lose 3 or more stops but it is worth with that cool light!
  • It is so quick to set up, well check out the video! Just one move, and ready to shoot! I am lazy to deal with bowen mounts etc… lol



In the end I’d like to say something that I’ve been keeping in mind for around 5 years strobing! I started, been shooting only with a shoot-through umbrella for 6 months before I got a softbox! Use it until you got all the things possible with it! One of the things I like is, “Never get a new light modifier until you don’t master the ones you have!” Enjoy using your umbrellas! Been using the round flash for some time now constantly, and the more I do the more I feel comfortable with it!

ラウンドフラッシュのいくつかの特徴:

  • カメラにつけるんじゃなくて、先ほど言ったとおりに、ソフトボックスとして使うと面白い結果になります! 
  • 被写体に近ければ近いほど、ラウンドフラッシュの特徴が出ます!光がきれいになります!そして、キャッチライトもすごく綺麗です!
  • ラウンドフラッシュの中で光がちゃんと回ってるので安心してください!ただ、3~4段ぐらい光が落ちるので、気を付けてください!

In the end

Now, I am preparing a series of new articles on some general topics, let me know which one of them you want to see first, so I get it ready earlier! Also other ideas are welcome too! Here are some of them: Portraits at night / Lens article (I guess 135/2) / Portraits in the rain / Use of gels / Using backlight / One light setups / Shoots with just one umbrella / General shooting portraits / Can cheap lenses make good photos / Swing the camera shots / Using snoots / Shaped bokeh / … or any other idea welcome, post it in the comments, and I will see if I am able to write about it! Also stay tuned for my new blog section starting soon called “Strobist Diary” There I will talk about many of my off-camera flash techniques from basic things to some advanced stuff!
