  18. 18. TIPS FOR NATURAL LIGHT
    A portrait at noon is very harsh lighting. Try sunrise or sunset.
    When indoors use available light from all sources (windows, doors, cracks)
    If your subject is outdoors, an overcast day is best. If the day is sunny, make sure to use a reflector or electronic flash to fill in shadows underneath the eyes

  47. 47. TIPS FOR USING A REFLECTOR
    Use a reflector to fill in shadows
    When outdoors can use the reflection of the sun. When indoors use the reflection of the main light source
    Gold creates warm tones and makes your subjects skin appear a bit more tanned or golden (warm)
    Silver Neutral in color although brighter than white and skin appears cooler
    White - Neutral color effect. Gathers the existing light and softly fills in shadows to light your subject
  48. 48. tin foil (ALUMINUM) does NOT make a good reflector unless your subject is blind or wants to be.
