Bowens really is back – and they’re made by Godox

For those of you that are unaware, a couple of weeks ago, U.K. online photography retailer WEX photographic, quietly announced that Bowens was coming back. And to many, myself included, this was a huge surprise. Why was it so surprising? It was surprising because in July 2017 Bowens went into liquidation and nobody’s heard a […] The post Bowens really is back – and they’re made by Godox appeared first on DIY Photography.

When we first heard that Bowens was going into liquidation, and then the official announcement that came a few days later, it was the end of an era.

5 ways to use an umbrella for stunning portraits

The umbrella is one of the most underrated modifiers in photography, I think. It’s one of the first that many of us usually encounter once we start working with speedlights or strobes, and Bowens even used to include umbrellas in their strobe kits. But we often feel that we “outgrow” them, in favour of softboxes […] The post 5 ways to use an umbrella for stunning portraits appeared first on DIY Photography.

Balcar to Bowens Mount – Convert Paul C Buff to Bowens System

Switching from Paul C Buff lights to any light brand that uses the Bowens mount means either buying new light modifiers or converting existing modifiers. The less expensive approach is a mount change. In this case, the Buff light modifiers offer the ability to remove the Balcar flange and replace it with a Bowens flange. In this video, you will see how to do it. It’s possible that the size will be slightly too small for the Buff modifier. If it is, I recommend using washers to fill the gap an...

German flash manufacturer Multiblitz goes into liquidation

The death of Bowens earlier in the year was met with surprise from many photographers. But it paints a fairly clear picture. That even though more people are using flash now than ever before, some flash companies are struggling. Perhaps it’s a lack of innovation or lacklustre customer support.

Why Godox is succeeding where Yongnuo failed

The flash market used to be rather simple. You go to one company for speedlights, usually your camera manufacturer or a specialist brand like Metz. Then, you go to another company, such as Bowens and Elinchrom, for strobes when you needed more power. The strobe market stayed largely stable, but then Yongnuo came along and […] The post Why Godox is succeeding where Yongnuo failed appeared first on DIY Photography.

"But the negativity came more from...

The Very Best Songs From Nashville

Nashville is back — this time around, at its new home on CMT. The network switcheroo may be questionable to some viewers, given that CMT isn’t exactly known for its groundbreaking programming. It wouldn’t be completely unreasonable for fans to worry that the nice polish on the series' outlandish storylines might be stripped away on a channel that specializes in backwood reality shows. It’s also almost a certainty that Nashville will be bringing an influx of viewers that the network normally wou...
