Positioning Fiber Optic Snoot

Recommended Posts

I just ordered a fiber optic snoot attachment for my Ikelite DS 125s. I'm wanting to know how to position these strobes. I have 2 arms on 1 strobe. Position both from the side? One above and one from the side? Straight on? I'm trying to minimize lighting the background.

All of the positions you mention will work, just be creative! Positioning the snoots straight on will let you set your camera for a slightly darker background, but not significantly, but do max out the strobe output if you want a darker background with a properly illuminated subject.

Good luck. In my hands at least putting the snooted strobe off camera is by far the best and easiest solution. Put the strobe on a tripod and go from there.
