Uncompromising Light Control

Grids are made up of cells that control off-axis light in 4 directions while still maintaining the soft quality you want from a large light source. By focusing light through a grid, you eliminate both light spill and lens flare simultaneously for precise illumination.

The Science Behind 40-Degree

A 40-degree grid is the most popular choice for photographers and filmmakers, allowing for precise light control with limited loss of light. Light loss at the center axis is minimal, even at a distance 3 to 4 times the diagonal of the softbox. This typically results in losing less than 1/4-stop.

The Hair Light Perfected

By allowing you to perfectly focus your light source on a defined area, grids are the essential accessory for your hair light or rim light. When modified with a grid and softbox, your light can illuminate your subject from behind without light spilling onto your backdrop to gain stunning dimension and depth in your portraiture.

Eggcrate Grids product testimonial by George DeLoache, George DeLoache Photography

“I choose a softbox with the same care as a painter might choose their brushes. A softbox by itself is like a chef's knife, adequate and functional. The addition of a grid is like switching to a scalpel, giving you total control of the shaping of the light.”

George DeLoache, George DeLoache Photography
