The many ways to use a beautydish

The beautydish is probably one of those modifiers that you can find in every studio in the world. And probably when you start with portraits or fashion it’s one of the first things you buy.

But why use it just one or two ways when you can do so much more;). So in this video we take a look at the Hensel beautydish and the possibilities.

How did you do that?

In a new series on the blog I’ll try to show some images including the light setup.
Normally you will find all the technical stuff in the instructional videos, my books or digital classroom but I’ll also show some on the blog.

 

This time a high impact portrait with Nadine.
Shot during a workshop with a very simple beauty dish and a wall with wallpaper.
You can see the students shooting the same shot.
The key is the nice harsh lighting from a silver beauty dish that is not too far away from the model and trying to shoot under an almost identical angle with the beauty dish creating nice flat lighting for this setup.
