Video: The Dramatic Difference a Reflector Can Make, And How to Use One by Yourself


Reflectors are one of the most affordable pieces of gear a photographer can have in their bag. They’re not only small in size (and usually foldable), they’re also versatile and provide benefits when using both natural and artificial light.

This oldie-but-goodie walkthrough by Matt Granger highlights these simple and useful photography tools and details how just a single reflector can make a dramatic difference, even if you’re out shooting without an assistant.

The seven minute video isn’t by any means comprehensive in showcasing the capabilities of a reflector, but Granger shows how useful they can be on-location by highlighting their ability to be mounted, held and shaped to fit your needs with minimal effort.

Check out the video at the top to see how it’s done and then let us know if you have any further advice for the reflector novice in the comments down below.
