Any suggestions from those of you more experienced?
And so far I've been using the dish with the white central reflector in place and not the grid. Do you favor one over the other? Why?
Thanks very much for any help on this...
I find it has more to do with personal taste. What I suggest, is to shoot the same subject and use different configurations of the dish and distances, etc. Make notes on which shots were done how. Now simply compare the shots in Photoshop to see which ones you like best. You will then find the "sweet" spot which will be your own personal "sweet" spot. Good luck.
