Lighting With a Folding Reflector

Chapter: Image Acquisition

Topic: Lighting

The nice thing about lighting a “talking head” with a reflector (and sometimes a light bouncing into the reflector) instead of a third light is that you are able to get an adequate amount of fill light without interdicting unwanted additional shadows on the face and highlights in the subjects eyes.† This produces a very flattering head shot with fill light that looks very natural.
