The grids come with four different degree ratings (40°, 30°, 20° and 10°) which give you progressively tighter control of the light spread. These grids are great for adding interest to your backgrounds, and for highlighting specific areas of your subject without fear of the light spilling onto unwanted areas. They are also great for adding drama to your images with high contrast and harsh shadows. Great for Low-Key images, to further restrict the spread of light, making it more contrasty and directional for even greater control of the light spread and to help separate your subject from the background.
