For softening of shadow edges - no diffusion filters. Three filter with holder. Weight: 99 g /3.5 oz.
Many of the developmental ideas for the Dedolight evolved from discussions with directors of photography, lighting designers and gaffers. We welcome your suggestions and challenges.
The novel idea for the eye attachment came from Director of Photography, Julio Macat. Before shooting feature films like “Home Alone,” he had worked on many music videos. He loves to highlight the actors’ eyes. In the past, he used Dedolights with barn doors for this effect. We suggested using the Dedolight projection attachment but found that, even when unfocusing the lens, the effect was too harsh. Traditional diffusion materials or various camera filters did not improve the effect. This gave us the idea of developing special filters for creating soft-edged effects. The purpose being to soften the shadow edge in various degrees without causing a lot of stray light. These new filters are different from traditional diffusion filters.
We now offer three filters: The weakest filter (#1) just takes the edge off a shadow border. Using the strongest filter (#3) or a combination, one can create a transition so gentle and flowing that the effect is no longer obvious. What remains is a beautifully glowing effect.
We have called this filter set “Julio’s Eyes” because of its history. This innovation has become a unique and very helpful tool when shooting commercials, product photography, tabletops and many other subjects. The effect of these three filters can be fine tuned by the focusing range of the projection lens. An additional variation is achieved by focusing the Dedolight head itself. The eye attachment consists of a filter holder which fits all of our projection lenses. It can accept one, two or three filters simultaneously, providing five different variations for softening the shadow edge.
