Art Brewer and Sunbounce

"Ever since I first picked up a camera in the 60's, my main light-source has been the sun. Shooting surf photography all over the world has taught me how to read and manipulate the light that exists. We used to use things like surfboards and white walls to bounce light for beach portraits.

Now, we just use a variety of sunbounce scrims, swatters and reflectors to get soft, magical lighting at any time of day. Shooting beachwear advertisements and catalogs from first light to last light means that something has to be shot in high sun. Sunbounce helps me transform high noon blowouts into soft highlights that compliment the content shot during magic hour."
