    Hi there. When referring to Medium sized BeautyDish, what size are you talking about? I've tried to google what size is medium sized Beauty Dish, but with no luck. Would it be 55cm or 42cm? How much beauty dish size really matter? Thanks so so so much for an answer!

    How do you measure the light in this setup? Straight from profoto's airTTL? It has to be HSS as well right?

    Very informative. I like how you showed the basic setup, the errors, the slight modifications, and explained it all really well. Subscribed 🙂

    It would be a better comparison if the eyes were in focus on the second shot.

    ok could you also use the reflector for the fill light ??

    2 translucent umbrella could do the job or is it too diffuse a light and it will not make enough shadows ?

    I have an odd question for you. At any point during this video, did you use a light meter? If yes, which one? If no, that's cool. Did you just keep shooting until you got the shot you wanted? No details needed, but you did you shoot in manual, aperture priority? By the way, the reason for the question is I am debating on getting a light meter. I think I want it just to want it as from what I can tell, no one appears to be shooting with one on a regular. I want it as I hope it will help me replicate certain setups/shots once I get my gear. Thanks in advance for your response.

    Which beauty dish do you recommend? can you recommend a budget friendly one and a pricier one?

    If you don't want to spend $2000 for Profoto strobes to reduce power simply put a 2 or 3 stop neutral density gel over your old powerful studio strobes. You'll save $1995. You don't need to spend $. As someone once said "light is light", there are many cheaper ways to control your existing strobes.
