LIGHT SHAPING DEVICE
THE LIGHT SHAPING DEVICE IS MADE FOR YOUR UNDERWATER FLASH.
The Light Shaping Device (LSD) works like a projector which takes light from your flash and pilot light to create a beam with a sharp image at the focus distance. The LSD uses elements like a lens, mask and a diffuser to generate the light beam.
IT’S EASY TO USE EVEN ON YOUR FIRST DIVE!
By turning on the pilot light you can see accurately how the image will appear before you press the shutter button. This way you can quickly find the right position for your LSD and start shooting.
YOU CAN SHAPE LIGHT, SHARPEN IT’S EDGES OR MAKE THEM BLURRY.
Left image is with the light beam focused. The focus point is at 175mm from the edge of the LSD (in water!). Right image is with the light beam slightly out of focus.
” A POWERFUL USE OF THE LSD IS NOT TO CREATE A SPOTLIGHT WITHIN YOUR FRAME, BUT TO CREATE A SPOTLIGHT LARGE ENOUGH TO ILLUMINATE YOUR SUBJECT AND FOREGROUND, BUT NOT THE BACKGROUND. ” – ALEX MUSTARD
