ExpoImaging has today announced availability of a new White Grid Insert accessory for the Rogue Flash Grid.
Honeycomb grids attach to a flashgun, helping to create mood or drama in portrait photography. They are typically used to modify hair light, rim light, background light, or the main light to focus attention on the subject.
The White Grid Inserts were designed to scatter light from the product’s honeycomb grid cells. When directed towards a flat surface, they produce a light pattern distinctly different from traditional black grids, creating a centre spot surrounded by a glowing halo-like effect.
“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,” says 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 colour of the flash. Our experience of manufacturing the ExpoDisc White Balance Filter helped us in our search to identify the best material to use in making the white grids. The result is consistent colour from the centre grid spot to the outer edge of the light pattern,” Erik continues.
As an accessory attachment for 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 the 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 White Grid Inserts are priced at £17.95 incl. VAT (RRP).
