Offering control over the intensity and direction of your studio lighting, scrims and flags are fantastic tools to make the most of your film, video, and photography shoots. Placed between the continuous light source or strobe and the subject, a scrim is a piece of diffusive material that softens and reduces the intensity of the light. Photo scrims come in different levels of opacity that directly impact their diffusion ability. From light to heavy, you can use a lighting scrim to achieve varying levels of softness and shadow in your photos and videos.

Lighting flags are pieces of opaque materials, such as black fabric or foam, used to block or shape light. Placed between the light source and the subject, but not obscuring the subject, lighting flags create shadows to enhance the frame's lighting. With a range of materials, sizes, and shapes to choose from, our selection of lighting flags is available to meet all your creative needs.

What Is Negative Fill, and How Can You Achieve It with Lighting Flags?

Negative fill is the reduction of light on one side of the subject to create contrast and depth. You can achieve negative fill with a lighting flag by placing it on the side of the subject opposite the light source, blocking or absorbing light to create shadow and contrast.

Can Lighting Flags and Scrims Be Used Together?

Yes, flags and photo scrims can be used together in studio lighting setups to achieve more precise control over the light. For example, you can use a scrim to soften the light and a flag to block or shape the light further.
