The scattering of light rays so that light is less directional and shadows are softer.
Illuminates relatively large area indistinctly, which produces soft shadows. Often created with floodlights.
Diffused light is softened light, with less shadows and more even coverage. A diffused light source is most commonly achieved by directing light through a translucent material, such as a diffusion shoot-through umbrella, a softbox, or a diffusion reflector panel.
Light that has been scattered by reflection or by passing through a translucent material. An even, often shadowless light.
or DIFFUSE LIGHTING - Light that is scattered and spread out as opposed to specular light. Diffused light is softer than direct light, with shadows that are less sharply-defined (lower contrast).
Indistinctly illuminates relatively large area. Produces soft light quality with soft shadows.
Produced by bouncing or diffusing light. This allows the light to spread more evenly, reducing hard shadows.
Light that has been softened by cloud cover or any other translucent element.
Solar energy is scattered and reflected in the atmosphere and reaches Earth's surface in the form of diffuse blue light from the sky.
