Heya,

A quick last minute session, we received a snow suit in the mail for a trip next week and of course we had to try it on and play in it. Never mind this is Florida! I wanted to test out the 28" beauty dish with its sock to see how it handles things. I set it up in the wind, fairly windy day all day, which is the point of me getting the beauty dish to have a more rigid kit that was smaller that could take more gusts more often. I also wanted something that could take a speedlite and have a lighter smaller kit for a quick run & gun type setup. Since we were solo, used the boom stand, otherwise this would be set up on a hand holdable light stand/pole.

Setup:

Approaching golden hour, near sunset time, which is around 5:15pm lately here in Florida!

Camera: Fuji X-T1 & Rokinon 50mm F1.2 (using AV mode, F1.2, ISO 200 (base)) and -2/3rds EC (dropping ambient to preserve highlights)
Filter: I used a 62mm 3 stop (ND8) Hoya ND filter for this due to F1.2 and ISO 200 with the limitations of a 1/4000s mechanical shutter
Lighting: Flashpoint R2 transmitter with TTL & HSS and EC set to -1/3rd for high fill; Flashpoint R2 TTL Zoom Li-On Speedlite in the S-bracket
(Used TTL to get automatic exposure without measuring. Used HSS to stop down ambient light for shallow DOF. Both cost you power output. The speedlite was at it's limits.)
Modifier: PhotoSel 28" Beauty Dish (white interior), Bowen's Mount (found it used, a little banged up), with white sock diffuser. No gels at this time.
Stand: Cheetah Boom Stand

The goal was fairly shallow depth of field with a smaller kit using a ND filter and HSS together to drop ambient while using F1.2 and ISO 200 with a mechanical shutter. The beauty dish is functioning as basically a softbox in this setup due to the sock and proximity. I picked up a beauty dish because I wanted something that handle wind and also still potentially give good soft light like a softbox without being a wind sale and without being as harsh as my 10" reflector. I had to use the ND filter because Fuji's base ISO is 200 and F1.2 together with a 1/4000 shutter cap makes for very different shooting conditions; the 3 stop ND filter drops everything nicely to where it needs to be with room to spare. This is a 100% manaul focus setup, which is what I wanted, and focus peaking allows me to easily focus on faces even with strong back light, in total shadow, with a ND filter in place (this is the point of switching to a setup with an EVF for this purpose). The lighting is totally automated other than setting EC for ambient and EC for the flash, to make for fast setups that do not need to be measured.

(the Demo shot was at F2 or F2.8, and you can see the speedlite can no longer illuminate the subject at that distance, it really was at its limits at F1.2)

Thanks :)

In hindsight I should have put the softbox closer.

No, the lighting is excellent. Great fall off.

More so if you're using huge sheets that cover the entire face of the softbox, or a small sheet rolled around the bulb.

Just the normal foot by foot squares. The side lights are silver umbrellas so I basically made a cone shape out of them covering the strobe and letting the umbrella shaft through. That or some I punched a hole in.
