Gary Fong has just announced several new products to help photographers get the most out of their speedlites. The new Lightsphere Collapsible Snoot Provides Unsurpassed Creativity for Photographers Seeking High-Style Lighting Effects in a Portable Size
The Lightsphere Collapsible Snoot captures and combines key elements from both the top-selling Lightsphere Collapsible and the wildly popular PowerSnoot. The Lightsphere Collapsible Snoot was designed for photographers seeking the control and creative allowances the PowerSnoot has to offer, but with the portability and universal patent-pending grip of the Lightsphere Collapsible.
The Lightsphere Collapsible Snoot, similarly to the PowerSnoot, gives photographers maximum efficiency and directional control over strobe lighting when mounted off-camera, allowing one to create cutting edge, “fashion style” special effects. The black finish of the Lightsphere Collapsible Snoot blocks the light spilled out of the sides of the diffuser so instead of filing a room with soft light, the photographer can project the light directly onto the subject with a controlled yet soft burst that is great for hair highlighting, selective lighting of subjects, or
highlighting a subject against a busy background. In other words, the Lightsphere Collapsible Snoot allows you to focus light into the areas you want to highlight, and more importantly away from the areas you don’t.
The Lightsphere Collapsible Snoot will be offered in two configurations: the Lightsphere Collapsible Snoot alone and the Lightsphere Collapsible Snoot with the Gary Fong PowerGrid. For those who already own the PowerGrid, it will be fully compatible with the Lightsphere Collapsible Snoot. For those that do not, the PowerGrid is a perfect pair to the Lightsphere Collapsible Snoot, allowing one to further reduce light spillage and increase directional control. The Lightsphere Collapsible Snoot is available for $49.95 MAP and the Lightsphere Collapsible Snoot with PowerGrid is available for $59.95 MAP.
Gary Fong also launched an addition to its Lightsphere Diffuser accessory line-up with the introduction of the Lightsphere Colored Dome Kit. Designed for photographers looking to elevate their creativity and gain accuracy, the Colored Dome Kit includes a Red, Blue and Green Dome for creating special effects as well as a Gray Dome for white balancing.
The Domes easily snap in place and are compatible with the renowned Lightsphere Universal and the highly acclaimed Lightsphere Collapsible so that all Gary Fong Lightsphere users can explore the possibilities that the Colored Dome Kit has to offer. The Red, Blue and Green Domes can be used on an off-camera auxiliary flash to ‘paint’ the sky a dramatic color or to add dimension and flare to an otherwise flat, boring background. Photographers already using the popular Lightsphere Collapsible Colored Gel Kit will have an exponential amount of creative allowances by either adding two like colors to deepen the chosen hue or by mixing and matching colors to achieve secondary colors, such as purple.
The included new Gray Dome will help photographers achieve the perfect white balance. Unlike traditional flat gray cards, the Gray Dome is spherical, gauging light from all directions, which makes it superior for the incident color metering necessary for an accurate white balance. Furthermore, it won’t bend, warp or fade like traditional cardboard gray cards, and it conveniently stacks on top of the Red, Blue and Green Domes making it uniquely small and portable.
The Lightsphere Colored Dome Kit offers an ideal tool set for photographers of all skill levels looking to create cutting edge, special lighting effects with the added security of consistent and accurate white balances.
The Lightsphere Colored Dome Kit is available for $24.95.
