That’s all tech talk. Why would we choose this type of light modifier? Well, my favorite saying in photography (and pretty much in life) is “Everything depends upon everything”. So we use it when we are looking to create an image that grabs attention because of the even semi-soft light with an edge, or snap, or my favorite technical term, “oomph”. It’s perfect for a woman with good skin because it will accentuate the skin, bring out the eyes and give great detail and flattering contrast to hair and wardrobe. We use the beauty light or butterfly light position to give us a symmetrical lighting pattern, and that also emphasizes eyes since the light is pointed directly at the subject.
