Beauty dish

The beauty dish (or beauty bowl) is, as its name suggests, aimed primarily at the beauty of picture and thus essentially portraits. It produces a contrasting light and highlights the details of the skin and face. It’s often the modifier of choice for tight portraits in fashion photography and makeup photos.

There are generally two kinds: one with a silver interior and one with a white one. The silver gives a slightly harder light and contrast, and the white is softer. There are also various sizes on the market — the classics are 40cm, 56cm, and 70cm.

A small disc inside the dish reflects light back onto the dish surface, meaning there’s no direct light on the subject. There will also be a beautiful reflection in the eyes of your model.
