HOW TO USE A REFLECTOR THE RIGHT WAY

SHOOTING NATURAL LIGHT PORTRAITS USING A REFLECTOR


WHAT TO SHOOT

Shoot natural light portraits using a reflector as a fill light. (shoot portraits, not just "headshots")
•As you are shooting the assignment, shoot photos "with" and "without" the reflector light.
•Do this for each "setup," so you can see the effect your reflector is having on your lighting.
(see below)



WHAT TO DO (CONTINUED)
•Shoot 30 images.
•Submit 2 sets of reflector light portraits and a proofsheet of 30 images
•Each set will show show a "before" and "after" portrait...
In addition to the use of reflector, each portrait should demonstrate interesting use of background and composition -your images should be visually compelling and portfolio worthy, something more than a simple headshot.

•Save your images as:
lastname_reflector1
lastname_reflector2
lastname_reflector3this is the proofsheet

(the third image will be a screengrab of your proof sheet).
•Remember COMBINE YOUR "BEFORE" AND "AFTER" IMAGES ON BACKGROUNDS (see below)
