Wireless flashing can make the life of a photographer a lot easier. With a wireless flash set all your flashlights can be controlled simultaneously. You connect the receiver of this set to one of the strobes and the transmitter is mounted on the flash shoe of your camera. You only need one receiver if the remaining flash units are equipped with a slave function. This function ensures that your strobes respond when one flash goes off. Ideal if you want to flash wirelessly. Receivers work in two ways: with radio waves or with infrared / light. Sets that work with radio waves are generally more reliable, but also more expensive.
Diffuse bulbs have as their main characteristic that they 'break' the light. A diffused bulb spreads soft light through the entire room in which you photograph. Because of this smooth, soft light you do not suffer from shadows. For this reason, you can use a diffuse bulb for example for portrait and interior photography. With the aid of a speed ring, you connect a diffuse bulb to almost every studio flash. The larger the sphere is, the farther the light is spread out.
Another way to soften, spread or reflect light is by using a flash umbrella. With a silver or golden flash umbrella you can bundle the light, while you can spread the light with a white flash umbrella. This latter method is called 'shoot through'. Here you flash through the umbrella, making the light diffuse. A flash umbrella can be used to influence reflection. By using a reflection umbrella, the light is reflected. This way you can manipulate shadows or even completely eliminate them. Do you want everything in one? Then it is best to buy a flash umbrella that can be used on two sides.
Honeycombs and filters
In addition to tools to distribute light, there are also accessories that are specifically designed to bundle light. Honeycombs have the shape of a grid, they combine the light and steer it in a straight line. With Frank you can also buy honeycombs in different shapes and sizes. There are honeycombs that can be mounted on a beauty depot or on a soft box. There are also models that are attached to a special reflector. By combining a honeycomb with a color filter, you can create color and light effects.
