Lighting With Reflectors

By Mike Luter

I love lighting with reflectors when shooting on location and thought I would share a couple recent ones with you in todays post. We were shooting at a local park and had just finished one session and were on the way to our next location when I saw this beautiful backlit situation.

The set up for this these shots was very simple… low sun behind her lighting in the back of her hair and creating a nice edge light coming across her body also. To get light into her eyes we simply added a silver reflector approximately 45° to her left. This created a nice quality of light and beautiful catch lights in her eyes. Here’s a couple images from this set up.
