Just a quick note from a long time Lightsphere user. I have been reviewing all my photos from 2006-2019. I have selected the "best of" for each year. It is crystal clear that the flash pictures using the Lighsphere were far superior to any other diffused or non diffused flash photos I have taken. And I tried a lot of alternatives. Thanks from a long time Lightshere fan.
Alan - thank you so much for saying this, and congratulations on all of the accolades of your work. Speedlights are amazing for shaping and changing ratios on photos simply because of the ability to use high speed sync. Add to that the completely "spherical" nature of the Lightsphere and you have diffusion, or focused beams/added color. The creative possibilities are endless really. Good for you for recognizing it and learning how to expand creativity with still photography.
