Clamshell lighting is a favourite of headshot photographers. It is a simple and forgiving way of lighting that produces stunning results, which keeps your focus on your subject rather than moving your lights around. The Portrait Illuminator takes this beautiful lighting to the next level with its unique crescent shaped catchlight. Our big and soft 33" Rapid Pro Beauty Dish is the Strobepro staff pick to pair with it.
In order to get your light overhead without crowding your camera position, we recommend a boom stand for your key light wen using the Portrait Illuminator . The Portrait Illuminator itself does best with a stand that can get low to the ground, such as our 7' 2GO Light Stand. Choose either or both options from the dropdown menus.
I'm very impressed with the Portrait Illuminator /Beauty Dish. The Illuminator is easy to put together, and the Beauty Dish pops open in no time - and both feel high quality in build and design. The results are lovely.
