The Studio Essentials 5-in-1 Reflector is the ultimate tool for reflective light control. This 5-in-1 Reflector feature a steel band covered with white translucent diffuser fabric and a reversible slipcover that provide you with 4 additional light modifiers: Soft Sun, Silver, White, and Black. Folding up to 1/3rd its original size, this versatile lighting tool is perfect for location or studio work.
Softens the harsh, directional light of the sun (or any other light source), creating a more flattering and manageable light on your subject. Often times, simply softening and redirecting harsh sunlight is all that needs to be done to create stunning, natural portraits.
Soft Sun is a weaved blend of silver and gold reflective material. This unique reflective surface casts a warm soft glow of light without the harshness and overly-orange color cast of traditional gold reflectors. The Soft sun side of our 5-in-1 reflector is best used outside during the golden hour when the setting sun naturally casts a warmer light.
Increases specular highlights, adds contrast and creates defined shadows. Being the most reflective surface, the silver reflector can evenly balance out the harsh shadows of the sun when used up close, and can project light farther than other reflective surfaces.
Arguably the most flattering reflective surface because of the soft quality of light it produces. White reflectors cast very soft, even light on your subjects that help smooth out skin tones and imperfections. As white is not as reflective as silver, white reflectors need to be used at relatively close distances and are ideal for close-up portraits and headshots. White can also be used to create a clean background for small product and macro photography.
Used to block, or cut light altogether or to absorb reflected light. This surface can be used to completely block out directional light, like the sun, to even out your exposure, or it can be used to limit the amount of reflected light from your primary light source, creating strong shadows and a dramatic look to your images. Black can also be used to create a clean background for small product and macro photography.
