Bounced or through diffusion ? (1 reply and 1 comment)

Hello sir,

When you light an interior in order to get a soft diffused light, what pushes you to choose between bouncing an H.M.I on an ultrabounce or using the lamp through a grid cloth for example ?

Thank you for the knowledge you're sharing.

I think you can easily find answers to this topic elsewhere on the site as it has been discussed in depth before. Basically, whether you use one or the other comes down to how far you want the light to 'project' and the space involved. A light shining through diffusion will have more of a throw than light bouncing.

I'll look into it. Thank you very much for the advice.
