When used in portrait photography, the edge of the lighting pattern produced by the white grids appears much softer and gentler, compared to the rapid fall-off and more dramatic lighting effect produced by black grids.
Watsonville, CA. (PRWEB) June 15, 2016
ExpoImaging, Inc., creator of the patented Rogue 3-in-1 Flash Grid, the first stacking honeycomb grid system for off-camera flash speedlights, today announced availability of new accessory White Grid Inserts for the Rogue Flash Grid.
Honeycomb grids attach to flashes in portrait photography help create mood or drama in an image. They are typically used to modify hair light, rim light, background light, or the main light to focus attention on the subject.
The new White Grid Inserts from Rogue Photographic Design were designed to scatter light exiting the product’s honeycomb grid cells. When directed towards a flat surface they produce a light pattern different from traditional black grids, a center spot surrounded by a glowing halo-like aura.
“Portrait photographers looking for a more gradual transition from light to shadow with their grids will be thrilled with our new White Grid Inserts for the Rogue 3-in-1 Flash Grid,” said Erik Sowder, ExpoImaging CEO. “When used in portrait photography, the edge of the lighting pattern produced by the white grids appears much softer and gentler, compared to the rapid fall-off and more dramatic lighting effect produced by black grids. This provides an advantage for creating smoother background lighting when shooting elegant or feminine styled portraits.”
The White Grid Inserts will not change the color of the flash. “Our experience manufacturing the ExpoDisc White Balance Filter helped us in our search to identify the best material to use in making the white grids,” said Sowder. “The result is consistent color from the center grid spot to the outer edge of the light pattern.”
As an accessory attachment to the popular Rogue 3-in-1 Flash Grid for speedlights, which offers photographers the versatility to choose between a 16º, 25º and 45º spot of light, the new White Grid Inserts give photographers even more choices to help them create the style of lighting and mood they envision for their subject’s image.
To use Rogue’s new White Grid Inserts, photographers need the attachment Grid Strap included with the Rogue 3-in-1 Flash Grid (sold separately). The White Grid Inserts cannot be attached to the flash without the Grid Strap. The Grid Strap can be purchased separately online for $14.95 at RogueFlash.com
