Equipment Review: Gary Fong Lightsphere Cloud

The Gary Fong Lightsphere Cloud is a diffuser that fits onto almost any camera flash, and is an item that no event or wedding photographer should be without. Other diffusers on the market merely direct the light, whereas the Gary Fong Lightsphere Cloud illuminates the entire room, mimicking ambient lighting, and produces soft, flattering light.

So how does it work?
Bouncing your flash off the ceiling produces diffused light, but sometimes, depending on your surroundings, this is not always possible. This is where the Gary Fong Lightsphere Cloud makes all the difference…

The majority of the light goes towards the ceiling, however, the bowl (the Tupperware-looking part) is also illuminated, creating an additional light source. Together, this creates a combination of bounce flash, with the benefits of fill in flash.
