The brackets are built with steel rods and the tripod-like legs are folded so that they can stand upright. Some C-
The bracket consists of various holes on the main telescopic rod and acts as a groove or slot for exchanging the arm.
This is very useful when considering the height and angle position of the modifier. Because C-
It is known that the stands will be knocked down and sandbags or shot bags will increase the extra weight of the legs for support (
To get the best support, wrap the sandbag or put it on the highest leg).
The flag is usually square or rectangular.

Built for specific lighting effects.
There are a variety of names, such as knives and pies.
The possibility to control the light with the flag is endless! Diffusions -
Yarn, mosquito net and SilksScrims are in long shape
Shape material with diffusion material for softening or reducing the amount of light on an object (s)or background.
Scrims can be composed of materials of different types, sizes, thickness and colors, usually made of lattice cloth materials. Open-
There are 3 frames in the face of graffiti, and the open side is just material.
Using this open side will give you a softer or less noticeable dropoff line.
Bobinettes such as mosquito nets (aka Cinenet)
Single net and double net are made of various materials and are used to diffuse light.
The double nets are similar to scrims, but they are twice the amount of material they have.
Some can even be made from a combination of materials, depending on the amount of light you want to spread, which will depend on which type to choose.
When doubling or tripling the net with the same or similar pattern, the wise decision is to rotate the second and/or next layers at least 90 degrees;
Otherwise, the pattern will be differentiated on your topic (

Others may soften the light and produce a soft or even glowing effect.
Bright painted walls or curtains, under proper lighting, can also be used to reflect light, just like musket, a large piece of fabric used to reflect light to large objects or
Griffith is like a bounce card, like a mirror, but there are different types of materials on both sides.
One side is able to reflect light with solid fabric, and the other side is made of reflective material that reflects light when needed.
Gold and Silver are the most commonly used reflective colors.
Mirrors can also be used as mirrors;
However, the light that bounces will be strong, so you may need to use the diffuse material on the light source itself or on the mirror.
GelsGels is considered a light modifier because they can change the color temperature, the light intensity, and the quality of the light source.
By thin, transparent, hot-
Resistant to polyester film, the gel is usually sandwiched directly on the light source.
Many different types of colors to choose from are endless;
The most commonly used gel, however, is tungsten 3200 K and daylight 5600 K.

The gel provides a wide range of effects, not only for changing the color temperature, but also for reducing the intensity of light and softening the light and shadow.
If the light is too dazzling to the theme (s)
, The use of neutral density gel will reduce the light level accordingly (
Available in a variety of thickness).
Diffusion gel (aka Frost)
Made of thicker material, the light automatically softens the light and shadows when placed on the light source.
