This week’s Project 52 topic was perfect timing for me.  I too often grab my off camera flash instead of using a reflector.  I fear the reflector will get blown over or will scare the dogs or….some other excuse.  In reality, a reflector can be incredibly easy to work with, especially if you can attach it to a light stand.  I use a California Sunbounce reflector – white on one side and silver on the other.  With a special attachment I can mount it on a stand and not worry about it (unless it is windy!).

This is Julie and Jack properly exposed with the help of this reflector’s silver side:

Here is the exact same exposure without the reflector and a pull back of my reflector location:

Reflector no reflector
Reflector pull back

That worked really well!  I need to remind myself to grab the Sunbounce as  I head out the door.   Now let’s reflect on how other pet photographers around the world incorporated reflectors into their pet photography.    This is a blog circle, so click on the links at the bottom of each post until you end up back here starting with Amyranth Pet Photography, San Francisco Bay Area, California .  Happy Travels!
