As with previous generations, the Gary Fong Lightsphere® Collapsible Speed Mount will continue to provide photographers with the ability to achieve studio-style lighting effects, anywhere at anytime. Collapsing down to a mere 1½ inch thickness, this new addition to the Gary Fong line-up will make traveling with large lighting set-ups a thing of the past. Better yet, the new Lightsphere® Collapsible Speed Mount boasts the newly designed mounting system which allows photographers to securely attach and switch out modifiers in seconds. Once in place, photographers can rest assured that the Lightsphere® Collapsible Speed Mount will stay securely in place, offering an equally tight fit for nearly all flash sizes.
The new Speed Snoot, with the same collapsible design and patented mount found in the Lightsphere® Collapsible Speed Mount, gives photographers maximum efficiency and directional control over strobe lighting when mounted off-camera, allowing one to create cutting edge, "fashion style" special effects. The black finish of the Speed Snoot blocks the light spilled out of the sides of the diffuser so instead of filling a room with soft light, the photographer can project the light directly onto the subject with a controlled yet soft burst that is great for hair highlighting, selective lighting of subjects, or highlighting a subject against a busy background. In other words, the Speed Snoot allows you to focus light into the areas you want to highlight, and more importantly away from the areas you don't.
Whether a photographer is shooting a backyard wedding, a senior portrait session or products for advertising, these latest additions to the Gary Fong line-up will make strenuous set-ups and toting around large lighting equipment a thing of the past. The travel-friendly qualities and clever design of the Lightsphere® Collapsible Speed Mount and Speed Snoot are sure to make these diffusors staples of gear bags everywhere.
