|New FlashBenders From Rogue Photographic Design Allow Photographers To Bend And Manipulate Light For Unparalleled Control And Creative Possibility|
The first release in ExpoImaging’s new Rogue line of innovative lighting accessories, flexible, shapeable Rogue FlashBenders, create situation-specific lighting
WATSONVILLE, Calif., June 7, 2010—ExpoImaging,Inc., which markets, designs, manufactures and distributes innovative camera accessories to the photographic market, today announced the release of Rogue FlashBenders, the first of several tools in a newly created Rogue Photographic Design line of light modification products. Rogue FlashBenders comprise a new system of positionable modifiers for shoe mount flash that offer precision lighting control for small strobe enthusiasts.
The flexible, shapeable Rogue FlashBenders were created to enable photographers to direct light exactly where it’s needed or to shield it from where it’s not. The patent-pending design incorporates positionable rods that molds the reflectors to a given shape and holds them firmly in place. Manufactured from the highest quality materials, these versatile, portable and rugged light modifiers can be attached and shaped in seconds, then removed and folded flat to fit into any gear bag just as quickly.
“Whether you’re a professional or amateur photographer, shooting in-studio or on-location, lighting with strobes involves controlling and shaping the light to get the image you want,” said Erik Sowder, CEO of ExpoImaging, Inc. “We believe Rogue FlashBenders represent a leap forward in terms of versatility, control and convenience for anyone shooting with shoe mount flash.”
FlashBenders install quickly with an easy belt attachment and are designed to work with all makes and models of shoe mount flash, thereby reducing both the need for model-specific purchases and total amount of gear carried.
The Rogue FlashBender series allow all manner of reflector positions. Shown is the Large Positionable Reflector on a Nikon Speedlight flash strobe.
