    How to use a reflector to control natural light

    | Photography Tutorials, Portraits | 17/05/2012 08:00am
    Tips for how to use a reflector

    A reflector is undoubtedly a handy piece of kit, but when it comes to portrait photography it’s absolutely essential. Shooting outdoors using natural light can be tricky, with the position of the sun often causing harsh and unflattering shadows. Fill-in flash will help, but if you want natural or warm tones a reflector will help to lift shadows, apply effects and tackle tricky light conditions.

    Reflectors are available with many different surfaces, such as gold (which adds a warm glow to faces) and white (which helps to lift shadows and balance light). You can even get reflectors with multiple surfaces.
