Rigid frame is great for in studio use. I use it primarily for shooting large furniture products to cut cross shadows from my background light. Really great product and is built to last.

I bought 2 for a small studio, Great size for location shoots. I use these when backlighting athletes during studio shoots, works great for blocking light from unwanted areas of my subjects. Also good for preventing lens flare.

Useful size of Cutter

I use this cutter to remove unwanted light fall off from a lage continous light source soft box. It would also work well with flash heads too. Working somewhat light an egg crate on a soft box, this cutter can be positioned next to the light and its lengh is good to fit along the sid eof the soft light, much like one flap of a barn door. I use several of these and have two of them permantly on c-stands in my studio. Don't let hot lights get too close - the fabric of this cutter may be fire ressitant but it will burn.

Well Made...!!!

I bought two of these. I was immediately impressed with how well they are made. I can see many, many years of use!! I'm using these {and others I've purchased} all the time,.....so they save time and are simply far to useful not to have on hand. Good quality, well made.

Excellent flag
