On Reflection…   Leave a comment

… I prefer reflectors.

Having lugged a portable outdoor lighting system (2 stands, umbrellas, flash lights and power) about with me over the past few weeks I have recently discovered the joys of reflected light.

What took me so long?

This week I invested in a 42″ reflector (white/silver/gold options) and yesterday got a chance to try it out.

A stroll down one of our village country lanes afforded us the opportunity of trying out this new bit of kit. It was around 7pm and the sun was just dipping behind the trees to our right. The light was being reflected back from the left on to the model’s face.

It was great fun using this bit of kit and it proved very easy to use, in fact the most difficult bit was folding it back up to put away!

So it is set to be a ‘must take’ piece of kit whenever I’m shooting on location from now on.
