Weekly Giveaway : No need to be harsh, soften the blow with this.

You have possibly seen this item attached to speedlights at various events. Or maybe read about it in your fave photo mag/blog.
Yep, you know the thing that looks like a food containers from the deli counter?
And most likely was the inspiration for the bit of kit that has become a staple in many photogs camera bags.
It’s in ours. Actually we use multiple versions, depending on the packing needs. One does collapse and that is what we travel with.
The Gary Fong Lightsphere
is a phenomenon that works.

It softens the light of the harsh speedlights, we all carry at some point in our shooting lives.
By taking the simple concept of a round slightly opaque container placed over the business end of a flash, you can spread and soften the burst, so that your subjects get the benefit of a more beautiful glow, instead of the shiny highlights they may be used to.
They do fit virtually all flashes, including the Nikon SB-600 and SB-800 and Canon 430 and 540 models. Using a “rubber band” and velco for grip, they stay on the unit when properly attached.

So if you’ve been waiting to try this out, or have 2 flashes to use, this could be your lucky week.
We’ll be giving away one of these to a subscriber to the free weekly Newsletter.
You know we feel that giving some of the coolest stuff in photography away to our most loyal supporters is a good thing.
A thank you.
