Whether you’re shooting videos or photos, lighting is always important. Without proper light, it’s hard to see the subject (or subjects) that you’re shooting. Then it leads to grain and noise in your shots, and that’s just not fun to deal with.
Now the point of this blog post isn’t to tell you how important lighting is, but rather, to talk about a useful tool – the reflector.
I stumbled upon a blog post recently from Planet5D that shows how you can fully utilize a reflector on set. They do come in handy a lot. Whether you need to fill in the shadows on a subject’s face, or to just move some light around, they are very versatile.
