Also known as "Rags" these are the materials that are tied to the Butterfly/Overhead frame.

For many years, only the basic materials were used such as scrims to reduce light, silk to diffuse light and solid to eliminate light.

More recently many new materials have been added to allow many degrees of diffusion (Grid Cloths, Black Silks, etc.) plus many new reflective materials are now available to make large reflectors for both sunlight and artificial light such as Matthflectors, Grifflectors and Lames.

    Comments about 12x12' Overhead Fabric - White China Silk:

    This silk cuts the harsh sun light and creates a diffused, soft, wrap around light. You can also use it in the studio to diffuse your HMI lights, or strobes. I shoot both people and product, and this silk comes in handy for all. I bought the 12'x12' for more coverage outside. Fold it in half to make softer light. Or put multiple strobe heads behind it to create a large softbank.
