I always have the best intentions when I try to experiment with something new but it never really goes as planned. I always think I will use the same setting and remember what I did different in each picture but I am not a a very organized experimenter. I just get distracted easily.
So I bought a reflector an insanely long time ago and just decided to play today. I can see what a difference it makes to use one in certain situations (not sure if I like it though it is probably just me not doing it right yet)...and how hard it is to hold one and take a picture at the same time. These pics were taken in pretty good sunlight though. Methinks I will hire my hubby to help me out tomorrow so I can replay with all the different sides and actually pay attention this time.
I wasn't really worried about comp or squinty eyes, really just wanting to see the effect.
White side(I think...see what I mean):
Gold(I know this one for a fact cause I remember the face)
I really just like the way the no reflector looked but that could be cause I used a wider ap too so it is harder to compare the look. I can also see where it might come in handy with catchlights. I am going to try to play tomorrow hopefully in some serious blacklighting and see if the reflector adds to the image. I also want to experiment with the distance of the reflector and such. It is always nice to have another tool on my side.
I was shocked that Blaze actually participated though so we will see if we can get two days in a row.
Next up fill flash...
