New light shapers for flashes and speedlights

The latest update for set.a.light 3D includes two new light shapers, each available for flashes and speedlights: A snoot with 6 cm diameter and a background reflector. Both offer photographers new creative ways to shape their images.

The Snoot is a cylindrical light shaper that bundles the light into a directed and focused beam. Due to its narrow opening, the light is concentrated on a specific area and thus creates a very strong beam of light. The Snoot is ideal for portraits, for example, where a targeted light accent on specific areas of the face or body is desired.

The Background Reflector is another new light shaper specially designed to illuminate the background. Directed toward the background, it creates a slightly oval, elongated cone of light and a soft, even light. The person or subject in the foreground is protected from disturbing light reflections.
