Hi, I'm looking for a round device that I saw the photographer use on a playboy shoot. It was brass and it fit around the lens. I thought it was a beauty dish but they work with the studio lighting a fit around the actual light. I hope you can help me!!!

Thanks!!!

Looks similar but know not exactly. Not sure I like the catch lights a ring light makes in the eyes. Thanks so much!!!

The closest I could find that even came close to what you described was in a paragraph
on this web page about an AlienBees’ Ringflash...

It's two-sided, so it has both gold or silver reflective surfaces, making it possible to come up with warmer or cooler light.

Fourth paragraph from the top...

Here's a page with a picture of an AlienBees' with one of the optional warming filters (for
model numbers ABR800 and ZRM1) that looks kind of like gold/brass...

Thank you so much but that still isn't it. It looks like a brass round device that connects to the camera somehow.

Thanks so much for trying to find out what i'm looking for but the device I saw didn't light up, just a brass thing like something maybe like to block the light I'm not quite sure. :(

Did you see said device in person or in an image? do youy knbow tha name of the photographer?

I saw it on TV about 3 times and for the life of me I can't figure out what it is. I googled the photographer and I'm getting the name David Mecey. I emailed him so maybe he will email me back. :wink:
