Reflectors

This week we began to learn about reflectors.  In all honesty, at first it seemed like a little bit of a hassle; I figured we could take care of most lighting issues post-camera.  I had an okay experience shooting with reflectors, but when I had the chance to actually hold one and control where the light went I learned a ton and began to appreciate them more.  In retrospect, I wish I had done that first so I could direct the light a little more.  Overall definitely a useful activity though.  I really like how, when you use a triangle formation with the camera, you can balance face shadows and create a more even feel.

  1. Good work using the reflectors and using the different sides, Grant. The shot that stands out to me the most is the silver reflector. Without it, the side of her face almost looks washed out, and with it her face shadows evened out. The other shots also look good.
