Re: Why do speedlights in beauty dishes face forward?

@michaeladawson Well, that's putting it in simplistic terms, this would be an umbrella in the sense that the Chimera Octa 2, which they call a "beauty dish", is an umbrella that can take a sock and a grid. Just replace the deflector disc with a rearward facing speedlight with an emphasis on portability.
