The D.I.Y. Scrim you can make yourself for amazing window light

Scrims are some of the most versatile light modifiers you can own. They diffuse the sun, or a flash. I put my speedlight (or studio light) behind a large, 4’x6’ scrim and can create gorgeous window-like light just about anywhere. You can buy scrims like this from various sources, or build one of your own if you’re on a tight budget. With a LunaGrip light modifier and one of these large scrims, you have a knockout bo of tools to create almost any kind of portrait or product lighting, anywhere – and it all folds down nicely and is easy to carry.

I’ve created a video showing you what to buy and how to build your own scrim for about $20. Have fun and share some of the images you create with it!

AsukaBook Video & Album Design Spotlight
Jennifer Fujikawa Photography

AsukaBook is proud to shine the spotlight on our customers! We love the great images these photographers capture and the high standards they set in the industry.

I e from a family of artists...I have a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts Degree in Entertainment Arts. I had a rigorous college career studying all types of art and I specialized in animation. I worked at Cartoon Network for several years but realized even though I loved story-telling, animation wasn't my passion. When I decided to take my hobby of photography seriously as a career, it was then all the pieces fell into place...I take a hands-on approach to create my images, using my artistic training to guide my clients and tell their unique stories....One day, their heirs will be looking at their photos too, reliving precious memories, keeping their love story alive.
