Ever won­dered how you could recre­ate the pro­jected sil­hou­ette back­grounds cast by theatre spot­lights us­ing your flash­gun? That’s the aim of the Strobo Gobo.

This small box acts a bit like a fil­ter holder, but at­taches straight to your flash­gun via a bracket. An­noy­ingly the bracket isn’t in­cluded, and it’ll set you back an ad­di­tional £25/$36, but on the up­side, it can be used with other mod­i­fiers in the Strobo range. Once you’re ready to shoot, sim­ply slide a gobo (a me­tal sten­cilled plate) into the holder, fire the flash­gun and hey presto: a back­ground sil­hou­ette. There’s even space in the holder to add coloured gels if you want to.

Las­to­lite in­cludes two gobo pat­terns to get you go­ing, with ad­di­tional fo­liage or win­dowde­sign packs avail­able sep­a­rately.

The Strobo Gobo is in­cred­i­bly sim­ple in con­cept, yet re­ally adds depth to a por­trait shot
