Open-Face Light

Redhead Open Face light videogrip.ro

Open-Face lights, as the name implies, have no lens in front of the bulb and are therefore slightly birghter per watt than a Fresnel. Open-Face fixtures use a double-ended lamp. They have a round face and an adjustable reflector for flood / spot control and come with barndoors and a scrim set. They are lightweight and durable.
Compared to a Fresnel, the flood / spot mechanism is slightly different. The mechanism changes the globe's position relative to the reflector. When the globe is close to the reflector, the reflector sends out a wide beam; when the globe is pulled away from the reflector, it reflects more rays in a narrower beam. Because light emanates from both the bulb and the surface of the silver reflector, open-face lights tend to spill light everywhere and this makes them suited as fill light. Open-face lights are often bounced into a white surface such as foamcore to create soft light.
Open-Face lights are also known as RedHead Lights or Blondies and use halogen lamps with powers ranging from 50 watts to 2000 watts.
