How to Use Your Reflector When Filming in Tough Outdoor Environments

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.

Filmmakers and photographers usually rely on
reflectors at some stage. They allow you to fill and control light on a
subject, giving you more flexibility when shooting in difficult environments.

Using a reflector to create a second, or softer
light source by redirecting the light is an important and useful skill. In this
lesson we’ll look at how to use both sides of your reflector, how to fill light
with it, and how to position the reflector to get the required result.
