Why a Reflector is a MUST with natural light photography

When do you need a reflector? In this video, I show you why you need a reflector and what the images look like with a reflector and without one.

This video will show you how to use natural light with a reflector to photograph a beautiful model.

Glamour with a Reflector!

Natural light photography (using a single light source) is a great way to create stunning images of your model. However, there are times when it leaves areas of the model’s body in shadows. This is when a Reflector comes in handy!

When taking pictures using a single light source, ask these questions:

  • Does her face need light?
  • What about the rest of her body?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, use a Reflector.

Look at the following images. Which picture do you like the most?
