By the 1980s, fractional Krugerrands were made available – the 1/2oz, 1/4oz and 1/10oz.The design dates back to 1892 when the country’s first coin series was circulated. It features a bust of the then president of the South African Republic, Paul Kruger, created by die-engraver Schultz. “The reverse design of the prancing springbok, South Africa’s national animal, was modelled by Coert Steynberg,” reads the South African Mint website.” It was originally created for the commemorative 5-shilling coin issued in 1947 to celebrate the visit of the British Royal Family to South Africa.”The name Krugerrand comes from Kruger and South Africa’s monetary unit, the rand – associated with the Witwatersrand, “the ridge of white water”, the area where gold was discovered in 1886.Queen Elizabeth celebrates her 90th birthday on 21 April.

first_imgMaterialsThe materials you can use to bounce light vary greatly — sometimes, the locations themselves determine what you can use: a ceiling, white muslin, foam insulation. Typically, when you’re using bounce sources, you’ll want to ensure that the bounce won’t affect the color quality of your light. For example, if you’re in a room with slightly yellow walls, once you bounce your light off of them, your lighting become slightly yellow, too.If you want to bring in your own bounce material for more color control, one of the best (and easiest) things you can use is white foam insulation from any home improvement store. This versatile material is easy to work with, and it can even help you bounce the sun to even out your lighting. This material has become a filmmaking staple, and you’ll find it on practically every professional set.Bounced lighting can really improve the look and feel of your work. It’s super easy to work with, and in many cases, it doesn’t cost you anything. Essentially, bounced lighting boils down to understanding that the larger the light source, the softer its spread.Looking for more info on lighting?

By bouncing your light onto a new material, this material becomes the larger light source — not the lighting fixture. Bounced light will usually be “larger,” creating a much softer throw and spread. Which makes it more pleasing to the eye.Limited SpaceBounced Light is perfect in small spaces that can’t accommodate a lot of equipment. Let’s say you’re shooting in a cramped office environment. You barely have enough room to set a light, let alone fly in a 4×4 frame of diffusion material. To combat this, you can easily bounce your lighting.By simply shooting your light into the ceiling or onto an adjacent white wall and using that as your light source, you fill the room with a beautiful, soft, and even bounced light. This is an incredibly simple process that can produce outstanding results. Even a simple bounced source can make the lighting on your subject far more cinematic. Bounced light can soften your lighting without the use of diffusion materials, flags, or extra stands. Take a look at how it’s done.Cover image via Komsil.Bouncing light is a fascinating-yet-simple concept that can instantly elevate your cinematography. In this article, we’ll take a look at how bouncing light can help improve your shoot in ways you haven’t even considered.last_img read more
