Gary Fong has introduced the new SnootSkin, which instantly converts the Lightsphere Collapsible light shaper into a snoot. The black lining of the SnootSkin blocks light from spilling through the sides of the flash, allowing light to be isolated and directed precisely. For more precise spot lighting, a grid insert is included for an even tighter beam. The system is designed to hold colour inserts inside a built-in slot that holds up to five colours. These can be combined to create a wide palette of colour choices. The current available colours are Red, Green, Blue, and Warming Filters in full CTO and half CTO.  The optional colour kit also includes an 18% grey tab for precise custom white balance. Prices start at $59.95.

DRAMATIC RESULTS IN HALF THE TIME WITH THE NEW GARY FONG SNOOTSKIN 

The new improved design allows photographers to quickly transform the Lightsphere Collapsible diffuser into a snoot in seconds, creating the ultimate portable studio.

  New York, NY – September 13, 2017 – GFIP Holdings LLC (http://www.garyfong.com), a leading photographic lighting accessories manufacturer and top educational resource, today introduced the SnootSkin™ for Lightsphere® Collapsible™.  The SnootSkin™ is designed to fit snugly inside the Lightsphere, greatly expanding the creative capabilities by instantly converting the Lightsphere Collapsible into a Snoot (spotlight) or color light source.

            The black lining of the SnootSkin blocks light from spilling through the sides of the flash, allowing light to be isolated and directed precisely.

The current available colors are Red, Green, Blue, and Warming Filters in full CTO (color temperature orange) and half CTO.  The color kit also includes an 18% gray tab for precise custom white balance. The SnootSkin, like the Lightsphere Collapsible, folds into a flat disk for easy storage.
