Using a Scrim in Photography

Scrims are light modifiers used in still photography and film. Made from steel or fabric, many different types of scrims are available. They help you reduce the intensity and harshness of lighting on set or in the studio. You can also use scrims on natural lighting, without the use of a light fixture.

 

Benefits of Using a Scrim

In many cases, you can't dim certain light bulbs electronically. Scrims are the only option you have available to dim these lights. Incandescent bulbs change color temperature as they dim, becoming progressively orange. To keep the color temperature consistent, you might need to use a scrim on these incandescent bulbs. Scrims are "color safe," and filmmakers often prefer to use them rather than electronically dimming their lights. Scrims also reduce harsh light on people's faces and subjects being filmed or photographed. If you want to cut light or create shadow, you can find a variety of light control dots, fingers, and cucoloris to add to your light modifier collection.


Steel Scrims vs. Fabric Scrims

Fabric scrims are better for diffusion, softening, and providing color to light sources. The scrim fabric also deflects the light, which causes the beam spread to change. Steel scrims never burn, and they're durable, lasting for years. Metal scrims also work with gobo lights and lights that have lenses, while fabric scrims don't.


When to Use Open-end Scrims

Use open-end scrims when you're trying to dim particular areas where light is falling onto the set. An open-end scrim allows you to control the dimness of light without causing a noticeable line, edge, or shadow on the scene or subject. These open-end scrims are usually fabric, and sometimes referred to as "nets."
