Anyone else want to chime in on their favorite modifier for their AD200's?
I also really want to know what the best reflectors are to use with the Bowens S-Type bracket. Right now I'm looking into getting a standard 7" reflector, and possibly a Colt 45 or some other "long throw" style reflector. I shoot a lot on location outdoors, so I'm thinking the long throw reflector may be best so I have the option to place my last stand farther back to keep it out of frame on wider shots.
I'm also hoping the reflector will help with brighter conditions using HSS. Any issues using the twin head with both bulbs with a reflector?
Sorry for all the questions, I'm just getting started with my dual AD200's and Godox trigger system.
I probably need to post some of my test shots, but I've discovered significant difference in the quality of light thrown by various 7-inch reflectors.
Without a doubt, the straight-sided polished reflectors cast the harshest, ugliest light. It not only has a glaring hot spot, but the falloff is uneven and "ringed." Brushing the surface makes it somewhat better.
The reflectors sold with Adorama--polished but pebbled surface--are nicer.
But I've found the Haoge brand reflectors which
h seem nearly identical to the Adorama reflectors--cast an even significantly smoother light. The design of the pebbling seems to matter a good deal.
