How does the distance between the light and diffusion material affect the quality of diffusion?
Assuming the diffusion is fixed at 3 feet from the subject and the light source is at 5 feet from the diffuser, what will happen to the specular highlights and the shadows when we move the light source to 10 feet (diffuser still at 3 feet from subject). We adjust the intensity of light of course but want to understand how does the quality of diffusion change. Also, will light softness remain same? (since the size of the diffuser wrt the subject remains the same)
