How to Create Your Own Reflector: a Flexible Video Lighting Must-Have
As a filmmaker, you know
how important it is to get your lighting right, but this can only really come
from a good understanding of how light works. Knowing what you want to achieve
is half the battle.
In a previous lesson, we looked at how important
reflectors can be when dealing with both environmental and studio lighting, but
what if you can’t afford to buy one? In this lesson, we’ll show you how to make
one out of some simple household products.
