Outdoor Portrait shoot by photographer Erik Valind using a Westcott Strobelite Plus, 5′ Octabank and Silver/White Scrim Jim.

The Westcott Strobelite Plus allows photographers to preview light patterns with an adjustable modeling lamp, a 400 effective watt second output, and the ability to “dial down” from 1/4 power to full power.

The Large Scrim Jim Kit is a useful photography tool that allows photographers to diffuse light, reflect light, cut down light, or completely block light.  With the variety of available fabrics, the Scrim Jim is one of the most diverse tools in the photography industry.  In this portrait shoot, Erik uses the Scrim Jim as a reflector to get more light on his subject, without having to use a second light.
