Confused by Studio Reflectors, well this is the page for you. A reflector does just that, makes sure that available light is reflected onto the subject to make sure that there is enough light for the perfect studio portrait shot. Available in gold, silver, white and translucent, light reflection in photography, is really important, but it has to be thought about carefully. Some reflectors give a warmtone to the subject and others have a harder reflective edge which gives harsh light photography, which can be useful if composing edgy fashion photographs, or bright street photos. A gold reflector will ensure that the subject in the photo is well lit in a gentle flattering photo, whereas a translucent reflector will soften the harsh studio light and reduce shadows that are spoiling the model.
