“Mola dishes do two jobs at once; they create a soft, beautiful, directional light, AND they don’t collapse in the wind.
While I also use Molas in the studio, they are my go-to modifier on location when I know that weather might be an issue.
Last summer we shipped two 43.5” Manti dishes and one 33.5” Euro dishes to Hawaii in order to tackle lighting in the wilds of the Kualoa valley on Oahu’s Windward Coast (the east side of the island).
Mola’s are an insurance policy…I know I’m covered with great, large-modifier light and I know they aren’t going to collapse!”
