Lighting with Reflectors

This was my first time using reflectors, and even though we had a limited time to capture the images, it was still a great experience. It took me several tries to take photos I really liked, but once I did, I loved those pictures.


This was my favorite portrait from the session. We used the black side to block the light that was overexposing his shoulder, and ended up with a really cool shadowed effect.
