Targeted lighting

mecastudio beauty dish now available

Studio photography really starts getting enjoyable when you have the right accessories to hand. And this is where Metz always has the perfect solution. When it comes to the targeted lighting of motifs in demanding portrait and beauty photography in particular, both passionate hobby photographers and ambitious studio photographers require the right equipment: that’s why the Metz BE-40 beauty dish and its accessories are now available in stores. As well as the BE-40 beauty dish, the LD-40 light diffuser, the BD-40 barn door flap and the HC-40 honeycomb filter are also available.

Targeted lighting with the beauty dish and accessories

Practically indispensable for great portrait and beauty shots: the beauty dish. It helps banish reflections in the eyes in a much more flattering and effective way than a quadratic surface light. The Metz BE-40 beauty dish provides even, direct illumination, facilitating a round, harmonious and nat-ural radiance from the eyes. The beauty dish fills the gap between a softbox and a standard reflector perfectly. The Metz BE-40 beauty dish is the ideal solution whenever the photographer requires soft, direct lighting.
The beauty dish can be optimally augmented by a selection of attachments: the LD-40 light diffuser facilitates softer lighting; the BD-40 barn door flap is ideal for rim lighting, effects and accents; and the HC-40 honeycomb filter provides improved, direct and more detailed light output.
