Westcott Top Pro Elite and professional photographer Erik Valind discusses the many uses of the Westcott Scrim Jim in this Top Pro showcase video. Shooting mainly outdoor lifestyle portraits, Erik finds the Scrim Jim to be one of the most versatile tools in his photography gear line-up. He uses this light modifier to both reflect and diffuse light, bring in shadows and add in highlights. Because the Scrim Jim is so lightweight, it can be easily packed for on-location shoots and readily available for various lighting needs.
