Rogue FlashBender 2 XL Pro Frank Doorhof Edition features 'Super Soft Silver' reflector
Rogue has introduced a new FlashBender 2 XL Pro reflector designed in collaboration with photographer Frank Doorhof. The reflector uses 'Super Soft Silver' fabric, a material that produces an effect that falls somewhere between the soft lighting created by white fabric and the harsher, more contrasty reflections of sliver fabric.
The FlashBender 2 XL Pro is the largest FlashBender model at 13in x 16in / 33cm x 41cm; it includes a belt and buckle for attachment to a flash, and an adjustable shape for altering the direction of light.
The Rogue FlashBender 2 XL Pro Super Soft Silver Reflector is available now from Rogue for $59.95.
ExpoImaging, Inc., creator of the patented FlashBender shapeable light modifiers for off-camera flash photography, today announced availability of the new Rogue FlashBender 2 XL Pro Super Soft Silver Reflector, Frank Doorhof edition.
“Photographers looking for more contrast in their images while shooting flash on location will love this new Super Soft Silver FlashBender 2 XL Pro,” said Erik Sowder, ExpoImaging CEO. “Highly reflective shiny silver fabric is prone to hot spots and is often too bright and too contrasty for portraiture, especially in brighter light. Our custom Super Soft Silver fabric falls between harsh shiny silver and soft white fabrics. It is brighter and more “edgy” than white fabric while producing a softer and more even light than shiny silver fabric.”
Professional photographer and lighting instructor Frank Doorhof is a master of using edgy light and contrast to create remarkable images. “I love more edge in my images,” said Frank, so when he first saw Rogue’s Super Soft Silver fabric, he knew he wanted a version of the Rogue FlashBender 2 XL Pro Reflector incorporating the fabric. Thus, the Rogue FlashBender 2 XL Pro Super Soft Silver Reflector, Frank Doorhof edition was born.
Designed for portability to pack flat in most camera bags or laptop compartments, the 12” x 16” (30.5cm x 40.5cm) FlashBender 2 XL Pro reflector is the largest FlashBender. Building on the success of the popular Rogue FlashBender light modifiers for speedlights, FlashBender 2 reflectors can be shaped to control the direction of light from an accessory flash, and FlashBender 2’s improved belt and buckle design provides a faster and more secure attachment to your flash.
With the control, versatility and portability of all FlashBenders and a Super Soft Silver reflective surface, the Frank Doorhof edition FlashBender 2 XL Pro Reflector represents a unique new photographic tool to create spectacular images.
