    A soft grid changes any softbox into a hard light source

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A soft grid does not change a softbox into a hard light source. Instead, it helps to control and direct the light from the softbox by narrowing the beam and reducing the spread of light. This can create more focused and directional lighting, but it does not change the quality of the light from soft to hard.

    Pick the correct statements involving light shaping

    • A.

      The larger the light source in relationship to the subject, the softer the light

    • B.

      The smaller the light source in relationship to the subject, the softer the light

    • C.

      The larger the light source in relationship to the subject the harder the light

    • D.

      The smaller the light source in relationship to the subject, the harder the light

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The larger the light source in relationship to the subject, the softer the light
    D. The smaller the light source in relationship to the subject, the harder the light
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the larger the light source in relationship to the subject, the softer the light. This is because a larger light source creates more diffused light, resulting in softer shadows and a more even distribution of light on the subject. Conversely, the smaller the light source in relationship to the subject, the harder the light. A smaller light source produces more focused and direct light, creating harsher shadows and a more dramatic lighting effect.
