From the Canon Professional Network:
Since early 2016 Marc Aspland has been working with the 20.2 Megapixel EOS-1D X Mark II DSLR, covering many of the major events in the sporting calendar and shooting portraits of top sports celebrities in his role as Chief Sports Photographer of The Times newspaper. In an exclusive interview he spoke to CPN writer Steve Fairclough on how he uses the camera and how it has helped to push the boundaries of his photography...
 
Having an EOS-1D X Mark II is the only major change in Marc Aspland’s kitbag this year as he currently uses: “…all of the same EF lenses that I used with the 1D X – ranging from my 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye all the way through to the 70-200mm f/2.8L and the 200-400mm f/4L IS USM EXTENDER 1.4x. In fact, at the [English] FA Cup Final I used a 2x Extender on it so I had an 800mm [focal length]. So, it’s anything from 15mm all the way up to 800mm, which is probably the stock choice of any sports photographer.”
 
Marc has been a lifelong user of Canon cameras but his style of sports photography is usually more about capturing the essence of an event, often in a creative way, rather than the key single ‘action moment’. He explains: “I don't need to be constantly pressing that ‘send’ button on the back of my camera to send everything – as the agency guys might do because their market is so vast. I know what my sports editor is after and I know what players the writers in the press tribune are specifically writing about – a manager or a player – so I can be a great deal more selective about the pictures I send. I don’t need to plug my camera into the ethernet… obviously I can but it's not a difference in speed to me – it’s a quality rather than quantity issue with my photography.”

From Rogue:
 
Rogue’s new Rogue FlashBender 2 XL Pro Super Soft Silver Reflector, Frank Doorhof Edition incorporates Rogue’s new Super Soft Silver Fabric into Rogue’s Popular FlashBender 2 XL Pro Reflector Design
 
WATSONVILLE, CA. – MAY 26, 2016 – ExpoImaging, Inc., creator of the patented FlashBender shapeable light modifiers for off-camera flash photography, today announced availability of the new Rogue FlashBender 2 XL Pro Super Soft Silver Reflector, Frank Doorhof edition.
 
“Photographers looking for more contrast in their images while shooting flash on location will love this new Super Soft Silver FlashBender 2 XL Pro,” said Erik Sowder, ExpoImaging CEO. “Highly reflective shiny silver fabric is prone to hot spots and is often too bright and too contrasty for portraiture, especially in brighter light. Our custom Super Soft Silver fabric falls between harsh shiny silver and soft white fabrics. It is brighter and more “edgy” than white fabric while producing a softer and more even light than shiny silver fabric.”
 
Professional photographer and lighting instructor Frank Doorhof is a master of using edgy light and contrast to create remarkable images. “I love more edge in my images,” said Frank, so when he first saw Rogue’s Super Soft Silver fabric, he knew he wanted a version of the Rogue FlashBender 2 XL Pro Reflector incorporating the fabric. Thus, the Rogue FlashBender 2 XL Pro Super Soft Silver Reflector, Frank Doorhof edition was born.
 
Designed for portability to pack flat in most camera bags or laptop compartments, the 12” x 16” (30.5cm x 40.5cm) FlashBender 2 XL Pro reflector is the largest FlashBender. Building on the success of the popular Rogue FlashBender light modifiers for speedlights, FlashBender 2 reflectors can be shaped to control the direction of light from an accessory flash, and FlashBender 2’s improved belt and buckle design provides a faster and more secure attachment to your flash.
 
With the control, versatility and portability of all FlashBenders and a Super Soft Silver reflective surface, the Frank Doorhof edition FlashBender 2 XL Pro Reflector represents a unique new photographic tool to create spectacular images.
 
Pricing and Availability
 
The Rogue FlashBender 2 XL Pro Super Soft Silver Reflector is available from ExpoImaging’s distribution partners worldwide. The Rogue FlashBender 2 XL Pro Super Soft Silver Reflector retails for $59.95.

From Broncolor:
 
Hot on the heels of the new Siros L battery powered studio monobloc, broncolor have also released two brand new lights shaping tools - the Edge Mask diffuser and Focus 110 umbrella.
 
Edge Masks
Using the broncolor range of softboxes just became even more creative and flexible. The new Edge Mask helps turn the rectangular sizes of the softboxes in to a rim light, allowing for subjects to be photographed in-front of and against the softbox, with the light wrapping around the subject from behind. This is a popular technique previously only created by flagging off the softbox with a board, but the Edge Mask provides a professional, easy and uniform method for creating the effect. Simply attach the Edge Mask to your existing softbox as you would an external diffuser.
 
Broncolor Focus 110 Silver Black Umbrella

Focus 110
The new parabolic Focus 110 umbrella (110cm diameter) provides a quick an easy way of producing a focusable parabolic light effect. Simply pop it up and use the lamp heads umbrella holder to slide and focus the shaper.
 
Availability
The new Edge Masks and Focus 110 are ready and available to ship now!
 
B&H has the Broncolor Edge Masks and Focus 110 available for preorder.
