We always dig giving something away here, that we use on a regular basis.
The Gary Fong Lightsphere.
It usually sparks comments from folks who are not familiar as they always say it looks like a food container.
Personally, we don’t care what it looks like, because it delivers exactly the kind of light from a speedlight we like.
We have used all 3 generations, and it has always been part of any event shoot we covered.
However on our last trip, it seemed a bit too bulky to pack, so we went to a standby diffuser for the head of the speedlight. Still works, but you didn’t get the spread nor the full softness.
That’s why we were pretty happy at PhotoPlus Expo when Gary was introducing his new collapsible version. Uses all of the same dome and light doublers as the other versions.
But it now folds pretty compactly. we picked one up and used it on the next shoot the following week.
For a lot more on this, and a vid to explain it all, just click here, or scroll down the page.
