Individually addressable LEDs have become accessible, inexpensive, and easy to use. On full power, they can be eyeball-searingly bright! They are also small point sources of light that can lack character if left bare. This is why most LED light sources are diffused (or reflected), to shape the light for a suited purpose, whether it be a light pipe in an enclosure or the backlighting inside a costume prop. In this chat, we'll talk with Becky Stern about the methods she's used to diffuse LEDs.
