Scrims are some of the most versatile light modifiers you can own. They diffuse the sun, or a flash. I put my speedlight (or studio light) behind a large, 4’x6’ scrim and can create gorgeous window-like light just about anywhere. You can buy scrims like this from various sources, or build one of your own if you’re on a tight budget. With a LunaGrip light modifier and one of these large scrims, you have a knockout combo of tools to create almost any kind of portrait or product lighting, anywhere – and it all folds down nicely and is easy to carry.
I’ve created a video showing you what to buy and how to build your own scrim for about $20. Have fun and share some of the images you create with it!
