Reflectors are amazing! Such a simple thing as a reflector or a diffusor can make a photograph significantly better. I really enjoyed seeing how I could warm or cool a photograph just by using gold or silver. Or soften the shadows by using the diffusor. I got a great example of what the reflectors can do with these two photographs. The first is with no reflector or diffusor.
This is the same place same time of day same everything, except I added the silver reflector to add light to his face.
I took the photos of my wife around sunset, because it was getting dark I wasn’t sure if I would have enough light to capture the photographs. The reflector saved the picture! I used the gold reflector near a street lamp at a park and was able to reflect enough light onto her to get a great photo.
