The Cucoloris is used to create shadow patterns on backgrounds or subjects. A flatly lit wall can be broken up into interesting pools of light and shadow. Lighting directors frequently use them to simulate sunlight filtering through trees.

The Wood "cookie" creates a distinctive pattern. The pattern itself depends on the distance of the light source and the distance to the background.

        Comments about Matthews Cucoloris - 18x24" - Wood:

        This is a fine cookie to achieve some fine and interesting lighting effects in studio or even outdoors provided there is relatively dim ambient light and a reasonable flat surface nearby.

        Comments about Matthews Cucoloris - 18x24" - Wood:

        This product's main use is to create a subtle lighting pattern on a background wall or set in order to add a bit of texture and variance to an otherwise flat or plain surface. Basically, you mount the cucolois (or cookie) to a C-stand or other support, shine a direct light through the pattern and then make any needed adjustments to create the pattern where you need it. Whether it's a flat wall or a set with flat lighting, the cucoloris is very effective and creating a more interesting and pleasing background. My only concern with this particular product is that the wood ply seems to be a bit thinner than I would expect, forcing me to be a little more cautious with the product than I feel I should need to.
