Rogue flashbender and Gary Fong Lightsphere quick review.

If you don’t like the look of harsh lighting caused by your external camera flash, you may want
to check out these two items.  I bought the Gary Fong lightsphere a couple of years ago, and find it really works.  I see wedding photographers use this thing, and it looks like a Tupperware bowl stuck on the end of your flash, but it’s quite handy and and does a good job of diffusing the harsh light from a flash unit.  The Rogue Flashbender is very different from the lightsphere, and can double as a snoot for directing light to a smaller area, without much light-spill.

I don’t find Gary Fong stuff particularly useful as I’ve tried the power snoot and a couple of other items that didn’t work as advertised, but the Lightsphere is the exception.
