Hi Roger, 

thanks so much for the podcasts, they’re been fantastic.  

You mention muslin bouncing a lot, I was wondering if that referred to a polyboard / beadboard with muslin fabric attached to it?  Or just a frame of the fabric? If just a frame, don’t you lose a lot of the output since the light is going through it? 

thanks!

I sometimes use muslin mounted on a sheet of poly when I have little space to work in but I otherwise tend to use 4' x 4' custom made sleeves of material that fit over frames. You might lose a little output without a backing but muslin is quite dense so I suspect it is pretty minimal.
