I LOVE the lighting that you see more commonly in the film noir genre from hollywood movies back in the 1940s and ’50s. More dramatic and moody, really being selective with the light and emphasizing the shadows. Sexy stuff!
A couple weeks ago I saw a video that Zack Arias put out in which one thing he talked about was the MAGMOD MagGrid. Because of how easily it attached to the speedlight like a industrial rubberband, and then attached to the actual modifiers using heavy magnets, I definitely wanted to test it out.
I used the MagGrid a couple of weeks ago on a photo shoot with Geneva. The grid was fun and easy to work with and gave me exactly what I was looking for. I included some photos from that shoot in the image at the top of the page.
I played around with the snoot today on a concept I had been thinking about for the past couple of days. That’s the shot below. The MagSnoot, again, gave me exactly what I was looking for.
I’ve only used the grid and snoot so far because I was looking for very specific ways of controlling the beam of light, but MAGMOD also make a few other light modifiers that are probably worth taking a look at. If you’re looking for a very versatile and easy light modifier system for your flashes, I would highly recommend checking out MAGMOD.
Just to let you know, I’m not sponsored in anyway by MAGMOD and have been very happy to purchase their products with my own money. 🙂
