The Flash The Studio Illuminators
We have already mentioned as a major category of illuminators is that of the illuminators Shot bulky, heavy and energy intensive, are ideal for illuminating evenly objects and subjects and, at the same time, can not be used outdoors or almost never when you have aa short time available to prepare the scene.
The first thing to point out is that there are two types of illuminators those with continuous light and the zipper (that resemble flash as a light produced, we will see them later).
Illuminators continuous light
There are two types light sources emitting light (for speakers also slang), illuminators concentrated light, the banks.
Here is the result obtained with the configuration shown in the diagram above (notice the flare and light rays in the picture http://bdmaster.net, due to direct exposure of the sun)
A set of external portrait can be achieved with the use only of a reflector the trick is again place the sun behind the subject and to reflect the rays of a reflector placed next to the camera (of course the sun does not It must be too low). In this way we will have a uniform illumination of the subject’s face and no underexposed area or covered by shadows.
Another interesting case is that of the photo shoot where the direct light is limited it is the case of an interior with a window through which filters a large amount of sunlight. In this case, without the use of flash, we would have the strong play of light and shade, and several underexposed areas. The solution is to create something like this
The reflector allows us to reuse the light filtering from the outside while the illuminator allows us to properly expose the subject (the part would be framed too dimly lit).

If you are hunting for configurations of light or photo shoots for specific situations, or simply want to create you a breviary with photo shoots to be used if necessary, I recommend a visit to Lighting Diagram this website, completely free of charge , it allows you to draw your own photo shoot (all schemes used in this article were created on Lighing diagram) and make it available to the community associated with the photograph obtained with that particular photo shoot.
Gl illuminators diffused light are characterized by a metallic mirror, hemispherical, positioned behind the lamp. The lamp itself is usually covered by a mirror so as to avoid a direct beam and the light that is emitted from the speaker will be, in fact, exclusively widespread.
