Bouncing light off of a reflector

June 17, 2010

(I shot this in Brooklyn with the midday sun producing harsh shadows.)

Another use of the reflector is by bouncing light off of it.  I used the silver side of the reflector and had a off camera light aimed at the reflector to bounce light onto the model.  By bouncing light onto the reflector, it makes the small light source of the off camera light into a much bigger light source.  Thereby making the light softer.  The reflector was on camera right and aimed at her face.
