Product Description

There are countless ways to modify light sources to achieve the exact image you want to create. While softboxes, umbrellas, and beauty dishes (deservedly) get much love from portrait photographers, they are far from the only means of adjusting and shaping light. Scrims and flags are as uncomplicated as they are useful when you need to adjust or transform your light source when making portraits.

They come in many shapes, sizes, and constructions depending upon their intended usage, and it is not uncommon for photographers to create their own using their preferred diffusion materials.

Conversely, while scrims are used to transform light, flags are opaque and block light entirely.
