Practice with Reflectors

White Reflector – The clouds were acting like a natural light diffuser at this point in the day and we used a white reflector on the right side of the model’s face to bring greater contrast and visual interest to the image. jacobhayes-white

Diffuser – The sun decided to come out and play its harsh games with shadows. We had someone stand about 6 feet away from the model and hold the diffuser above their head to cover up the model’s face to get rid of all of the harsh shadows that had formed to soften everything off.

No Reflector – Pretty self explanatory. No reflectors were used in the capturing of this image.

Gold Reflector – For the second image we used the gold reflector to bring some warmth. The sun was directly behind the model, so the majority of light on her face came from the reflector. jacobhayes-gold
