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.
Silver – With and Without
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!
