Reflectors are an essential tool for photographers of all skill sets and genres. Conveniently portable and easy to work with, reflectors are affordable and highly sought-after pieces of equipment. They have an extensive range of uses as well due to their ability to manipulate both natural and artificial light. The majority of hard light can be controlled by either being bounced off or diffused through the slightly reflective material, resulting in the perfect picture every time.
White: Great for reducing shadows, the white reflector will cast a soft and delicate light onto the subject to create a natural effect. White will not alter the color of the light, making it ideal for indoor and outdoor portraits.
Black: Black reflectors are excellent for absorbing unwanted light and casting aesthetic shadows. When placed to the side of a subject’s head, black can soften the eyes, making them appear more natural under the sharp sunshine.
Gold: When creating warm tones, the gold reflector will decrease the exposure from the background to the foreground. This results in a more natural effect when backlighting, gently mimicking the radiant glow of the sun. Gold works best when taking portraits in the natural sunlight and under soft, warm backgrounds.
Silver: The silver will reflect the greatest amount of light and can provide a sharp and bright contrast light. This brightening effect will highlight fine surface textures and improve color saturation. It can also create a colder tone in photographs. Silver is often placed under a subject’s head to reflect light onto the face, creating a beautiful brightening effect.
Translucent: Translucent reflectors especially stand out as they will trail off sharp light to create images with the softest light and the least amount of shade contrast. Translucent is perfect for location lighting and shoot-through photography.
