Swipe!!! You guys know how much I love sharing these hacks with you 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻. Have you had lunch yet? If you haven’t, here’s one hot plate of tutorial for you!! 😀😋.A reflector is one tool you'll find with a lot of photographers. I'm sure you've either witnessed or had a photo shoot with one. It brings a lot of pictures to life! It is great for manipulating light. You can use it to bounce light into whatever/whoever you're shooting and create spectacular pictures with it. Use it to remove unflattering shadows and even block distracting light. Sometimes it can even be your main light source.
If you want one and can't afford it, don't fret! You can create yours in 5 minutes using a cardboard, foil paper, scissors, and tape.
1️⃣Get your Cardboard, aluminum foil, tape and scissors ready! 2️⃣Start by cutting your cardboard to the size or shape you want. 3️⃣Place your aluminum foil on the surface of the cardboard and 4️⃣Use the tape to seal it behind. Now, there are two sides to your aluminum foil. One side is a tad more reflective than the other. What you can do is ....cover both sides of your cardboard with each side of the foil...you get? So that depending on how much light you want, it'll be easy for you to choose the side that'd do the job for you. 5️⃣Your Reflector is ready! Shikena! If you feel the cardboard is light for you,you can use a carton or foam board.
Place your reflector close to your product and then capture.If you're shooting a portrait for example, you can hold it yourself,or give your assistant or even give the person you're shooting to hold it while you take the pictures.If you have undesired light coming in from your window or door, you can use your reflector to block it. .
This is a great hack for any Photo! It’s easy,cheap and effective. Are you going to try this? Send me a Pic of yours when you do so I can share💃See how the light is bouncing in the boomerang in Pic 7. Hope you enjoyed the meal😀. Please wash it down with a bottle of juice from @mayschills
