Portrait shooting with one flash and Scatterflash ~ video

A new tutorial video

Photographer: Damien Lovegrove

Model: Kayt Webster Brown

Video production: Martin Hill

Graphics: Marianne Lowen King

Lighting kit: Godox AD200 Pro, Scatterflash

Location: Two Wei Location House

The day before the UK lockdown was announced we filmed this series of five setups showing how I use the Scatterflash lighting modifier with a Godox AD200 flash.

I’ve sat on this video until now because I wanted Scatterflash to be in stock when it was released.

I’ve used the time wisely by rebuilding websites and rescheduling my 2020 workshops. There will be more announcements on both of those in the days to come. But for now, here is an eleven-minute tutorial video.

    Hi Damien,

    is the part of the Scatterflash than goes on the Flash unit flexible? Reason I’m asking is that I would like to use with a Profoto A1 which has a round head…

    Thanks and best regards,

    Herbert

    Hi there Damien,
    I’m eagerly awaiting for the September restocking of Scatterflash. Love all the videos and help, you’re an awesome teacher and very thorough at explaining. My question is, will the Scatterflash holder worth on a Godox TT685? I believe the dimensions are similar to the SB900. Thank you and keep up the fantastic work.

      Hi Patrick,

      Unfortunately I’m completely out of stock at the moment. I’m hoping to have 60 more units at the end of September then a further 200 at the end of October. I’ll let you know when there is stock :)

      Best regards, Damien

    Is Nikon flash D700 compatible with scatter flash modifier?

      Hi Carlos, unfortunately the D700 is too small for the first version of Scatterflash without some kind of packing piece. This Scatterflash has a perfect fit on the D900/ 910.

      Thank you for your enquiry.

      Kindest regards,

      Damien

    Hello, I wanted to ask if it is possible to buy the Scatter Flash from you.
    I live in Italy and have not found an importer.
    Grace in advance.
    Best regards.

      Hi Roberto,

      Yes we ship globally from our base in the UK. Shipping to Italy is fast.

      Select € Euro from the top of this page, add Scatterflash to your basket and checkout in the normal way.

      https://www.scatterflash.com/

      PayPal is the most popular payment method but there are others too.

      Kindest regards,

    Damien! Amazing tutorial (as always)! When we were in France 11 months ago, you mentioned the scattergels and the rods that were being produced and I’d been wondering when those would eventually go on sale. I just ordered a set! Can’t wait to use them, though with the way the lockdown is here in the US, it might be a few more months before I can get in a quality shoot with the model, but I’m definitely looking forward to having the scattergels in my kit!

      Hi Jay,

      Thank you for the compliments. I was amazed at how long it took me to get this to market. Just going from the 3D printed model to the version involving 6 injection moulded pieces was a big challenge involving a lot of steps. It’s here now though and I’m very pleased with the way it works. Thank you for buying it. I’ll get that shipped over to you today.

      It probably won’t be too long now before you can start shooting again. Things are starting to open back up in the US from what I hear on the news.

      Stay safe,

      Damien.

    Thoroughly enjoyed watching this video. Love the ‘easy’ manner of presentation & the images.
    I don’t think I have ever photographed a person – in earnest ( outside of family snaps ) – but found this fascinating
    Cheers

    ps – absolutely love the GFX50r & your previous reviews / how to’s were a god send when I changed to the Fuji platform & the camera. Can see a lot of use for this lighting in landscapes – particularly flat light in more intimate shooting
    Thank you

    Hey Damien,

    Looks like a great product. FYI for me all the buttons worked on the website except the all important “Buy Now” button. However, the “Add to Cart” button works.
    I will probably pick one of these kits up. Love the drama this adds to the scenes as you said.

      Thank you for the valuable feedback Lyndon. I tidied up the link on that button.

      Kindest regards,

      Damien.
