Rogue FlashBender Reflector - Small
When to Use a FlashBender Small Reflector
The FlashBender v3 Small Reflector is ideally suited for on-camera flash photography because it helps to soften the light from your flash whether you're shooting inside under a white ceiling, or outside in the open. The Small Reflector is smaller and lighter for on-camera use than other FlashBenders.
FlashBenders Pack Flat and Don't Take Up Usable Space for Other Gear
FlashBenders are the ultimate "there when you need it" light modifier because they are light weight and simply fold in half to pack flat in your bag without taking up any significant space. Because FlashBenders can sit on top of other gear or in a laptop slot, you can carry it with you whenever you might need it, saving valuable bag space. Photographers looking to pack and travel light will be hard pressed to find anything as useful or adaptable as the FlashBender v3 light modifiers.
FlashBenders Direct Light Where You Need It
The FlashBender's shapeable reflector directs light up and forward towards your subject. This allows you to take advantage of a good bounce surface when you have it (white ceiling), or to avoid it by curving the top of the reflector forward when you do not (yellow or orange colored ceiling, or no ceiling).
FlashBenders Are More Efficient Than Diffusers
The FlashBender design also conserves energy because it directs the light from your flash towards your subject instead of scattering it everywhere. This has the benefit of allowing you to shoot on lower flash power settings with faster recycle times, and results in fewer overheating problems and longer battery life.
Simple flash diffusers on the other hand just do one thing, scatter light everywhere. This can work when you're shooting under an 8' white ceiling, but not so much when you're shooting outside, or under an off-colored ceiling (yellow, orange, etc).
Unfortunately, because diffusers waste power by scattering light everywhere your flash is constantly firing at higher power settings than necessary to light your subject. This means your flash gets hotter, takes longer to recycle, and your batteries drain faster than if you used a more effective and efficient directional flash modifier.
On-Camera Flash Photography
Attach the FlashBender reflector to your flash (locked in upright position) and shape the top of the reflector to bounce light forward to fill shadows and create catch lights. If you are shooting under a good bounce surface (white ceiling), then shape the reflector to allow some light to bounce off the ceiling.
Off-Camera Flash Photography
Because the FlashBender v3 is shapeable you can also use it off-camera to modify your main, background, or hair light when shooting with multiple speedlights. You can use a single FlashBender to modify light in different ways for different purposes. The FlashBender reflector provides directional control over light from off-camera flashes. Attach the FlashBender reflector to your flash and shape its top and sides to direct light to where you want it, or to block it from where you do not.
Reflector/Gobo: Shape the FlashBender to control lens flare, light your subject without spilling light onto your background, or light your background without spilling light onto your subject.
Snoot: Shape the FlashBender into a snoot (tube) to create a circle of light. The snoot can be used to selectively light a face, or to focus a hair or accent light.
