No adapter ring needed.
The Apollo Orb is the first octagonal softbox that doesn't require an adapter ring. Simply open like an umbrella, place the light inside and attach the included diffusion panel.
Designed specifically with a deeper profile, light is evenly projected for maximum output
This round octagonal shaped unit simulates the look of natural sunlight by providing a round catch light in subject's eyes.
The convenience of an umbrella meets the control of a softbox. Built on an umbrella frame, the Apollo light modifiers set up in seconds.
No additional parts and pieces to lug around as these units simply open up just like an umbrella and set up in seconds making them perfect for any on-location photographer.
Face the light forward through the white diffusion front for specular highlights. Specular highlights will provide a "hot spot" on your subject with a greater fall off from highlights to shadows.
For a softer and more even light, an optional 2875 reflector plate may be purchased. This in-expensive bracket acts as a mirror bouncing the light back towards the back of the Halo light modifier resulting. This end result is your subject being very evenly light with just a gradual fall off from highlight to shadow. This is the same affect is using a softbox with the internal baffle and outer diffusion panel both in place.
Fabrics are pure in color so the color temperature going into the fabric is the same color temperature coming back out.
