In this episode of BUFF Basics, Kyle (@throwing_fitz) uses Link Units and magnetic Color Gel Domes to created three setups utilizing the new Eclipse Optical Snoot.
The optical snoot is versatile for a variety of headshots – whether it be polka dots and fronds or a simple sliver of light, our snoot has a place in every photographer’s lineup!
For the first setup, Kyle kept it basic. He placed the model in front of a red backdrop and used the circular GOBO to create a spotlight. This a good example at how the snoot can be used to create elegance and simplicity!
For the second shot, Kyle used a starburst GOBO’s to add interest to the backdrop.
He used a V-Flat to prop up our 5-in-1 Reflector to bounce additional light onto the model. He used a 47″ Octabox as the key light.
For the final setup, Kyle stacked two GOBO’s to create a circle with an X inside.
He used a 24″ Silver Interior Beauty Dish with a teal gel dome as the key light. He placed the model in front of the 47″ Octabox and lined the snoot (with a red gel dome) up to her face creating a “superhero-like” mask.
