Old Hollywood Lighting with Rogue Flash Modifiers

Old Hollywood Lighting with Rogue Flash Modifiers

Hollywood glamour style portraits are dramatic, high contrast images with deep shadows and bright highlights.  This look can be achieved with a variety of different lighting tools including small flash and modifiers.  The Rogue Grid and Rogue FlashBenders are the perfect tools for using small flash to create this classic look. 

Using Rogue FlashBenders rolled into snoots and Rogue Grids, photographers can create spots of light to create striking and elegant shots reminiscent of Old Hollywood.

The images below were taken by photographer Robert Harrington.  The first image was creating using a 3 light set up.  The key light is a speedlight modified with a Small Rogue FlashBender rolled into a snoot.  The hair light is another Small FlashBender rolled into a snoot.  The backlight is a Rogue Grid.

The second image was shot with just a single speedlight modified with a Rogue Grid using the 25º insert.

The series of shots below were also created my Robert Harrington using only small flash, the Rogue Grid, and Rogue Small FlashBenders rolled into snoots.

The Rogue 3-in-1 Flash Grid is a portable and easy-to-use light modifier that fits most standard sized flash models from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Nissin, Phottix, Godox, Metz, Yongnuo, and the Profoto A1.

Honeycomb grids produce a spot of light with gradual fall-off.  They can be used as main lights, as hair lights in portraiture, or for background and accent lights to create mood and drama.

The Rogue 3-in-1 Flash Grid uses 2 interchangeable and stackable honeycomb grid inserts to create a 45º, 25º, or a tight 16º grid spot for dramatic lighting effects.


Because the Rogue FlashBender v3 Small Reflector is shapeable you can also use it off-camera to modify your main, background, or hair light when shooting with multiple speedlights.  Shape the FlashBender to control lens flare, light your subject without spilling light onto your background, or light your background without spilling light onto your subject.

Shape the FlashBender into a snoot (tube) to create a circle of light. The snoot can be used to selectively light a face, or to focus a hair or accent light.
