Light qual­ity

Amateur Photographer - - Testbench Lighting Test -

WITH ITS cir­cu­lar ar­ray of mul­ti­ple LED light sources spread over an al­most 50cm di­am­e­ter, the Anova PRO 2 pro­duces a nat­u­ral, but soft, light source akin to us­ing a sim­i­larly sized soft­box or brolly. Mov­ing the light closer or fur­ther from the sub­ject soft­ens or hard­ens the light on the sub­ject, ex­actly the same way as with a tra­di­tional light. The out­put from the flash is still bright, and my mod­els strug­gled at times with the flashes, es­pe­cially when the light was near. A soft­box does re­duce the glare, but as pro­fes­sion­als they were happy to con­tinue. We did take a few breaks, though – it’s im­por­tant for sub­jects to feel com­fort­able dur­ing a shoot.
