    It gives much more fall-off (ie. large feathered circle of light) than a softbox, constrasty yet somewhat soft at the same time..

    Thank you J Chan, do you happen to own one yourself? Might I ask what is the normal size, in inches?

    I think surrephoto have used the beauty dish before for portraiture shots.
    Maybe you can approach him for more information on the beauty dish?
