Simple Question on Bounce Light (1 reply and 1 comment)

Mr. Deakins regularly mentions that he bounces light off muslin (for a soft key light).

Is there a difference between white muslin and unbleached muslin?

And is the fabric hung from clamps or stands, or is it resting on a white rectangular solid?

Bleached muslin is white, unbleached muslin is more yellow resulting in a warmer color temperature.

It comes in all forms. It be as simple as a rag (clamped anywhere, taped on a wall…), they also make floppies out of them, and you can also get it in large sizes with grommets for large frames.
