All about beauty dishes
What is a beauty dish?
The beauty dish is a large dish with which light can be reflected on the subject in a wide bundle. The product is linked to a reflector and thus ensures the reflection of the light. Due to the shape and material of the dish, the design acquires a soft and refined lighting. The reflector is therefore between the effect of a direct flash and that of a softbox.
Use in portrait photography and fashion shoots
The beauty dish, as the name suggests, is especially suitable for capturing a person in such a way that the facial tones emerge in all its beauty. Essential here is the lighting that the product takes care of. The beauty dish is therefore mainly used for portrait photography and fashion shoots. The contrasts ensure the skin colours appear more beautifully in a shot. In addition to its use for fashion shoots, the beauty dish is increasingly used for shooting athletes. The reflector ensures muscles can be accentuated, and the physique comes out better.
Different sizes and versions
Beauty dishes are available in different variants, each of which creates a different effect on the subject to be photographed. The size depends on the distance to the subject. With a smaller studio it is therefore advisable to take a beauty dish with a limited diameter, while at longer distances a larger unit can be chosen. In addition to the size, beauty dishes are available in two colour variants: the white and silver version. The white version is the most common and softens the subject, while the silver version brings out more details. Finally, beauty dishes are available in both round and octagonal shapes. This combination allows a beauty dish to be easily converted into a softbox.
