The Light Bridge Changes the Way Light Is Bounced with CRLS Reflectors

The light reflector gets a major update with The Light Bridge CRLS reflector system.

Controlling bounced light can be a challenge, a challenge that The Light Bridge, a company founded by the lighting crew of DP Christian Berger, aims to overcome with the CRLS reflector system. These aluminum bounce cards are specially made to not only reflect 97% or light without changing color temperature but to also create less fall off and spill, all resulting in your light having a more natural feel.

To put it simply, the CRLS system makes it possible to reflect more light in a more controlled and accurate way without needing to use additional sources or a ton of flags (to reduce spill).

CRLS comes in four different diffusion levels: Black (minimum), Blue (median), Violet (medium), and White (maximum), as well as two modulators: Green (creates a soft stripe of light) and Red (creates a hard stripe of light).

Prices range from $500 to $3730 depending on which kit you go with. Head on over to The Light Bridge's website to learn more.

The DIY in me wonders how hard it would be to mimic this product with the frosted mirror spray-on product.
