If you’re like me you probably own an inexpensive reflector but it sits with the rest of your gear and barely gets used.
I must admit that my reflector sat around for about a year until some pros showed me how to really get the most use out of it. I find reflectors particularly useful in back light situations. This way I can create a short lighting that makes my subjects look thinner. This video is quick and to the point. It shows you the basics. The title of the video is $30 reflectors but I used $20 since I just bought a 5 in 1 reflector off of Amazon for $20.
I highly recommend getting out there with your camera and giving reflectors a try. Once you really start using your reflector you’ll never stop.
