This CowboyStudio Barn Door Grid and Gel Set, commonly used in films, television, and theaters, would be a great addition to your studio. Barndoors alter the shape, amount, and color of light that is output by flash heads. They can direct your light beam from narrow to wide, giving you more control over how much light is directed at your subject.
The attachment gets its name from having the appearance of a large set of barn doors. Actually, there are four sides or “leaves”. There are two large leaves that are used to widen the stream of light and two smaller leaves that are used to narrow the stream of light.
They facilitate the shaping of the beam of light from the fixture. This prevents the distinctive scatter of light created by the lens from spilling into areas where it is not wanted, such as the eyes of audience members.
