Frequently Asked Questions
What material is best for diffusing light?
With uniformity of diffusion, our opaque acrylic sheets allow only 37% of light to pass through, making it an ideal option for controlling your light.
What is a diffuser sheet?
A light diffuser sheet masterfully limits the amount of light easing how it impacts eyes throughout the day. Light diffusers can also be used in photography by softening the direct light giving a smoother image.
What can I use instead of a diffuser?
Depending on how you intend to use a diffuser, and the light source you’re diffusing, we would suggest using something opaque. Alternatively, you could rather bounce the light off a pale surface to diffuse it which is often used in photography.
What is the function of a diffuser in front of a powerful light?
When placed in front of a light source, a diffuser allows the light to pass through the sheet, however, some light rays will be bounced within the sheet, refracted, and redirected out of the sheet from a new angle, giving a softer light output.
What is a light diffuser for photography?
Photography masterfully manipulates light to create dynamic highlights and shadows, however, sometimes even the most skilled photographer will need to diffuse the harsh light to allow for a clearer image this can be done with softboxes or reflectors.
