Review of the Month
The brand new 5-in-1 freestanding 55”x79” Port-A-Scrim available for checkout from the IMATS equipment room is way more interesting than its name indicates. This single-piece frame has several types of diffusion and reflector materials that you can attach and use as a freestanding unit to filter or reflect light for your photo or video work. This simple kit can turn the sun into a lighting studio! Review by Rachel James, Associate Director of Instructional Media
