reflecting sun

Recommended Posts

Well, I think the most effective way is to use a mirror. But that'll be a very hard light.


how close can it be to your subject? I would use a reflector disk on the white setting probably. or set up as large a white reflector as possible. I've used pieces of paper, I've used white bristol board, I've used 4x8 styrofoam sheets, I've used white bedsheets...really anything you have access to.

I did this with a 1.5 meters by 1.5 meters mirror kind of 10 meters away if I remember correctly.




I think mirrors are very versatile and if you think that the light which goes to the character is very hard you can always diffuse it.


Have a lovely day.
