Fashion photographers, who pretty much invented the location shoot, have known for a long time that when it comes to light, natural is best - provided you can control it. The Sun-Swatter Big Super Saver Starter Kit from Sunbounce is part of a system that does just that. Resembling a huge fly-swatter, this 6 x 8' (183 x 244 cm) light shaper stretches a translucent screen across its high tensile strength aluminum frame.
A couple of minutes of easy setup gets you a very large patch of bright open shade with manageable contrast, thanks to the included 2/3 stop diffusion screen, instead of glaring deep-shadowed sunlight broiling your subject. While the Sun-Swatter is easily handheld by its frame, why not use the kit's Boom Stick extension handle which gives you a maximum extension of 10.4’ (319 cm). Also included are a grip head for stand mounting and a set of clips to tighten the fabric. The kit fits neatly in the included soft carrying case.
The frames can be quickly disassembled, are made of the highest-quality aluminum and are extremely stable, even in windy conditions
All reflector screens are manufactured using the world's most high-quality reflective and translucent materials
