The sun lit the right side of her face very brightly, so we used a gold reflector on the left side to even her face out and cover the shadows.



I used one gold reflector to lighten the shadows from the overhead lights. The gold provides a comfortable, warm skin tone.


Key and Fill Light

I used a speed-light as the key and we used a silver reflector to fill in the spaces on the left side. The background, because of the speed light stayed dark for some great raw contrast.

These photos are both taken with the same settings, one with a silver reflector, and the next without.

I hope you enjoy my submission! Please let me know what you think!
