Today I finally got around to fully test the S180 studio light setup as I had absolutely nothing to do today.
I also decided to take this opportunity to yes one of my other figures in my collection aside from Momo.
Here in her lively splendor is Ayanami Rei by Yamato.
But before we begin here is the rundown about this studio light set. It consist of
1. 3 strobe lights
2. A large square diffuser
3. A large octogonal diffuser
4. A honeycomb head with 4 different colored gel
All the lights are very well built and it seems to be equiped with all the trimmings you would expect from a studio light set, minus the expensive price tag of course.
Also I better put a disclaimer about this review, this is my first time using a studio light set all by myself and without the hustle and bustle of a time schedule but I make no claim that this is an exhaustive review of this studio light and I make no claim that I am very very sure of my techniques here. Right let’s get down to it shall we?
So what kind of lighting result can you expect when using this diffuser? Well the shot up there was taken with this setup.
The lights are nicely diffused resulting in no harsh shadows, typical of any SB600 outfitted with a stofen diffuser. Nothing special, let’s move on.
I know what you’re thinking “what the hell?!” There is absolutely no DIFFERENCE!
Anyway, moving on….
Now we have come to the part I had enjoyed the most when I was testing and reviewing these studio lights, the honeycomb. No studio light set would be complete without it! It is the most versatile piece of equipment in a flash set, studio grade or otherwise.
But what is a honeycomb light? Here is a close up shot of it in the next photo.
These colored gels can be really used to achieve some funky effect! Needs more exploring!
With that this concludes by review and sharing for today’s entry, I hope you’ve enjoyed it! Thanks~~~~
