How do you describe the lighting setup: book light and do you refer to it as something else?

I've heard it referred to as a 'Wedge' occasionally in the UK, but most often just as a book light.

Hello,

How I've learned to do a booklight is a large enough light (I've used source 4s & 2ks) aimed/bounced into foam/beadboard, then having that bounced light going through some sort of diffusion (I like 4x4 open frames w/ 250 or 216).



(Talent/Set) <-- [Diffusion]---<--<-----[Light(s) aimed @ Bounce Board]--->-->--[ Bounce Board


I hope I explained it right
