I stumbled upon this behind-the-scenes photo of the Transformers: The Last Knight and saw the grip holding a gold reflector. I know that for many of you this is probably nothing extraordinary, but I didnt really find many instances of it being mentioned in an interview with a DOP or something like that. The Last Knight really did have some lovely tanned, copperish skin tones in some scenes, and I wonder if at least in part that is thanks to the gold reflector. So I wanted to know is it really rare or not rare at all? Are there any DOPs that are known to use it whenever the scene might call for it or be suitable for its use? Then I saw that Manfrotto offers some other possibilities: Sunfire, Sunlite, and SoftSilver: https://www.manfrotto.us/30-tri-flip-kit-2-stop-trigrip-diffuser-7-colors https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/418586-REG/Lastolite_LL_LR3696_TriFlip_8_in_1.html Some Web sites, however, seem to show that Sunfire and Sunlite are not uniform, monochromatic, but rather striped, coming in two colours. Or maybe Im not getting something. Sunfire seems nice, though I cant firmly say which one I like best. I presume that these reflectors are mostly used by portrait and wedding photographers. I know that white, silver, and black are the most widely used, but what about the others? Anyone tried them? Anyone saw them used or mentioned somewhere? I remember that I asked David and Satsuki about the checkerboard reflector in some thread around here, and I think that they said that they seem to recall perhaps Deakins using it somewhere. https://www.filmandvideolighting.com/6x6chregolim.html http://www.filmtools.com/6x6chlacat30.html http://www.cinemagadgets.com/productdetail/465
