How exciting! My new Magmod kit arrived today. Magnet modifiers are sleek, easy to use modifiers for most speedlites. I bought a couple of accessories including the basic kit with some gels, Maggrid (a honeycomb grid) and Magsphere (a round, rubber diffuser). I was itching to get out and try it but in the absence of a subject, I had to make do with my wooden bear. I practiced with two speedlites at varying angles. Now I’d like to scale this up a bit i.e. with a human subject and a nice location! The images in this post are straight out of camera – the main image is my favourite kind of single light photography – the flash is positioned slightly behind the subject to the right with the Maggrid attached.
Below: Flash position camera left with Magsphere diffuser and another flash positioned diagonally opposite.
Below: on camera flash pointing straight up with Magsphere diffuser. Second flash positioned behind right.
Below: off camera flash with honeycomb diffuser to the left and, if I recall, a second flash pointed at the wall behind (from the right).
