From Yesterday - All with the Kacey Dish

spxxxx and to anyone who knows I have a quick question about the Kacey Dish... my birthday is coming up and I would love to get studio strobes but I do not use white seamless because of lack of space yet, so to be able to go out on location and shoot with just one B800 with a softbox we're talking 650... thats kinda steep to start, so i was thinking of picking up a beauty dish, the kacey dish has GREAT results but on the website, you have to buy the bracket separate from the dish itself it seams? so does that mean its $146 for the dish plus $136 for the bracket? how does the bracket work quality wise, would it be smarter to just get a Cheetahstand bracket and use that?

All taken with a single Elinchrom D-Lite 4 it + Rotalux 100cm Octa.

Less is more :)

I love these Leigh, I'm just wondering if you could please share basic lighting setup as to how far with subject to background and light to subject measurements? I tried something like this and my results weren't quite as good, I'd love to be able to master it for a fool proof setup with new models.

Thank-you.

This was taken with the flash on-camera, which I thought came out pretty nice considering.

Well, no shadows and flat lightning. I you like it great, but I'm not a fan of pictures that look directly flashed.

I've got the Kacey BD & double bracket. For me it was a no brainer just so that I could mount 2 lights in the BD. It's also a very well made setup that is built to last through the on location stuff.

As to whether or not you would be better off with an AB800 + Softbox, well that's a bigger questions than I have time to answer here. Two radically different looks / applications.

You do need both - so it isn't cheap - BUT it is very well made and the service I've had has been excellent (and I'm in the UK) .... I don't know if the Cheetah bracket would work as I've never seen it

Remember the Dish is heavy and needs a good strong bracket

Nothing overly creative here. Just a Nikon SB-24 on the floor behind them. I think it was at 1/2 power.

5D + Sigma 50 @ f5.6 + Cybersyncs
