Fluorescent lamps are soft in nature and naturally diffused on their own. Many times, when using fluorescent lamps in conjunction with a softbox, the standard full-stop diffusion front that comes with the softbox is too much. The result is the light is very flat. In some circumstances, this is the preferred look. In others, photographers and videographer want more punch" to their light. This 1/2-stop diffusion panel provides that extra punch and is an ideal pair with these soft and natural fluorescent lamps. While still diffusing the light, it will provide just that little "extra" punch to bring images to life and add specularity.
This diffusion panel to diffuse light by 1/2-stop.
Quick set up.
The grid cloth attaches to the outer edge of a softbox through hook and loop tape.
Unlike many photographic diffusers found on the market, Westcott's diffuser fronts are manufactured using a pure white fabric to insure no shift in color temperature. The light color going into the diffuser is the same light color that will go out of it."
