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.
