Watch 13 part series at: https://tinyurl.com/3u8vpb7h Using dedolight Lightstream reflectors there may often be a misunderstanding. When you use a #1 reflector, you have a more defined redirection of the incoming beam, therefore more light reaches the target. When you employ reflectors with higher numbers, like #2, #3 and #4, those feature a different spread angle. They light a larger area, thus, from the point of view of the talent to be lit this is often perceived as a softer light. This is not true. It is simply less light that is reaching the talent, because of the wider spread and the...
