What is the difference between using a snoot and a grid ? Using a snoot gives a harsher or harder light, adding a lot of contrast on your subject. When using a grid, the light is softer. A grid allows the light to bounce around, meaning your light is coming from multiple places, whereas a snoot directs the light without allowing it to bounce.
