Recommend a beauty dish
Dec 13, 2012

I'm a filmmaker looking to grab a strobe to shoot some stills, my favourite photographer is Ellen Von Unwerth as I like how her images are fun and flirty and how her images marry the direct flash feel of Terry Richardson/Juergen Teller with a more glamorous Helmut Newton feel.
I'm looking to recreate her lighting feel, here's two examples of her look:
Kylie -
Vogue - http://romanceinthestars.wordpress.c...pon-june-2010/
From these behind the scenes shots of the Kylie shoot it looks like she's got just a single beauty dish, perhaps with the continuous HMI to give an ambient boost
Can anyone offer me a recommendation of what type of BD would help me achieve this look? I mean, white or silver? Mola or Profoto (or other?) 22" or 20" or 28"? etc.
It's all very confusing and I'd most appreciate a little bit of help! Cheers.
