If you haven’t seen it you should go check out Melissa Rodwell’s Fashion Photography Blog. Specifcially you should check the behind the scene’s video of a fashion shoot.

She talks about using the Profoto beauty dish with a grid on it. We used to have one of those at the studio and I used it all the time. I provides a very interesting circular light with cool fall off behind the subject. It also make very “fashiony” shadows on the models face, especially under the chin.

This image was taken with the gridded beauty dish. I think it was the first time I ever used it.

Just got my grid the other day, using it tonight! Very timely..

It’s definitely a very different kind of light. Not a standard grid and not a beauty dish.
