An essential “Tool of the Trade"


The Blue Ring Gaffer’s Glass is an essential “Tool of the Trade” for professional set lighting. It is designed to allow you to locate the center of your key light or “hot spot” to accurately determine where to position lighting to achieve optimum coverage.

The Alan-Gordon Enterprises Blue Gaffer's Glass is designed to assist professional lighting designers during setup. The pocket-sized lens has a neutral density rating of 3.8 and is held up to one's eye giving users a clearer picture as to how the shot is lit. The glass can also reveal the location of the sun behind clouds. Additionally, the Gaffer's Glass is ideal for revealing the condition of tungsten light filaments.

  • By holding the Blue Ring Gaffer’s Glass™ up to one eye while standing no less than 10 ft away from the source of the light, you can look through the Blue Ring Gaffer’s Glass™ into your key light while your assistant focuses the light to your liking.
