Product details 

The GLOW EZ LOCK 42″ SILVER BEAUTY DISH is an ingenious portable version of the light modifier famous for stunning fashion and portraiture images showcasing the incomparable safe and sure EZ Lock system. No more clumsy construction, fumbling with flex resistant rods or struggling in frustration for careful alignment of speedring holes. The 16 ribbed dish opens up and closes down, ‘umbrella style.’ The ingenious self-catch EZ Lock surrounds a thick center shaft, providing a comfortable place for your fingers topush-lock the mechanism open, and a generous wide button to unlock-release and close the beauty dish painlessly. The quick-to-setup quasi-parabola saucer like assembly has all the advantages of the beauty dish allure without the disadvantages of damage that a metallic dish confronts during location travel and is free of any of the drawbacks of a delicate bendable dish. This folding unit ismade for the road, however, with sturdy aluminum support rods for structural stability and extraordinary fabric strength.

This 42″ Silver version of the Glow EZ Lock Beauty Dish series serves on subjects from head and shoulders portraits to dramatic fullfigure studies, an optimal tool for mastering all shooting situations where quality counts. It shines in tight spaces where softboxes and umbrellas cannot fit the set comfortably.

The unique beauty dish properties are achieved using a double reflector system that softens the flash properties twice. The final effect has qualities that cross between that of a direct flash and a softbox, giving the image a wraparound look – like a softbox, but with more contrast and a more dramatic directed beam. The white interior finish delivers a deliciously soft output, creates subtle distinction and reveals more detail of your subject. Intrinsic to the beauty dish design is a small reversible opaque deflector cover that is suspended concave profile out, directly over the front of the light source, preventing direct light from hitting the subject. The light then bounces back off the inner curved deflector plate and floods the wall of the outer bowl of the beauty dish, resulting in a broad spread of softer indirect light. The effect is gentler than obtainable from a standard reflector and markedly less harsh than of a speedlight. By flipping the deflector plate and using it convex side out, you can realize differing levels of light distribution.

Photographers use 25″ to 42″ beauty dish on monolights and flash heads for flattering people shots, especially for sculpting facial features and creating beautiful shadows and catchlights. Glamour and sports photographers, which typically use a crisp type of lighting to enhance curves, muscles, and texture, use all sizes of the Glow EZ Lock Beauty Dish. This bigger silver 42″ diameter model can produce a beam with more ‘reach,’ washing more focused light to treat larger subjects and areas as well, but you will realize the most striking results when the dish is in relative proximity to the subject. When stacked in a vertical tower array of two or more, the beauty dish accentuates a model’s full figure with perfect head to toe coverage.

With the Glow EZ Lock Beauty Dish Eggcrate Grid, you have a powerful tool in your arsenal of master lighting. By covering the aperture of the reflector with the egg-crate grid, you gain more control of a light source’s beam, and feathers hard light for a more attractive shadow, virtually eliminating spill from the rest of the body and the background. This strong directionality can be used to add high-key depth for fashion images and emphasize the model facial structure as well as the eyes, lips, nose, and chin.

The Glow EZ Lock Beauty Dish attaches onto the favorite Bowens mount with the included speedring, but most brands of studio flash and monolights can efficiently use this beauty dish with separately purchased Glow adapters for almost any monolight or the Glow S-Type Speedlite Bracket with Bowens S-Mount for speedlights and barebulb strobes.
