Lighting Notes - Part 2 of 3 - Grid

If you haven't read part one yet, you probably should.

So the light stand has literally not moved since yesterday's color shot, but instead of a shoot through umbrella there's a Honl grid. It's pretty similar to a normal reflector-and-grid setup except it's smaller. If you're not familiar with that, it's basically turning the light into more of a spotlight.

It does a good job - gives the same feel as my normal setup. Crisp edges, doesn't throw light around, but it's not harsh like purely direct light would be. It does have more of a hot spot in the middle than I'd like, but all in all I can't complain. It'll be interesting to see what I can do with it outdoors.
