In yesterdays video Scott Kelby he showed how to use a "Flag" to control the amount of light (negative fill) that came out of a softbox and lit his subject. If you didn't watch the video yet, you might want to view it here before moving on.
What I want to share with you today is an alternative that is less expensive, more versatile, and significantly more portable.
It's Cinefoil from Rosco.
Cinefoil is a heavy duty aluminum foil that is painted flat black on both sides that can used as a flag, barn doors, and more (come back tomorrow and we'll show you more).
It's not very expensive, a roll of 12" x 50' is $32 and a roll of 24" x 25' is $29, but because it is heavy duty a piece can last you a long time. The two pieces you see me use in the video below have been used over and over again. They are the only two pieces we have pulled of the roll since we bought it a couple months ago and they are standing up just fine to all the work we've put them through.
See you tomorrow with another use for Cinefoil, the "Duct Tape" of lighting.
