•Reflected light is the professional's edge in a photo world filled with complicated technologies and expensive demands for more light sources. Reflectors also allow photographers to harness the strongest and largest light source available to them, the sun. A simple well placed reflector will bring life, color and interest to the dullest of subjects.

• The set of Glow reflector surfaces can soften shadows, reveal details hidden in darkness, enhance skin tones, diffuse harsh sunlight, add a sparkle to the eyes,or add contrast to a drab scene. All this power, without cords, in a highly portable kit consisting of 5 different resilient fabric surfaces stretched over the single spring steel collapsible frame.

• The Silver disk adds the greatest amount of reflection, creates specular highlights, and has the greatest reach' of any in the set. Used carefully, it is the hero of your multi light solution'. Silver adds a definite glow to enhance skin tones, making it a favorite tool of fashion and beauty photographers.

• The Gold disk transforms your light source into the warmest glow, evoking the aura of sunset and romance. Our special Gold/Silver pattern is the real secret to adding a degree of warmth to all subjects and skin tone families. Without theoverpowering color shift common to totally gold reflectors, the zigzag silver/gold pattern produces subtle warmth.

• White produces the most even, natural bounce reflection of light and serves faithfully to maintain color balance and beautifully fills any subject relative to the degree of distance placement from the subject.

• White also can be used independent of other light sources to produce gorgeous catch lights in the eyes. Large catch lights imply innocence and liveliness. Even without light directly hitting the white reflector, the white object in thesubject's field of view will appear in the eyes as a circular catch light, adding value to portraits and headshots.

• Black serves as a negative or subtractive light modifier. When used in proximityto the subject, the disk acts as anti-reflector' scrim, enhancing contrasts, deepening shadows and creates stronger, firmer lines. The black surface also lowers tone to overly light areas to expand the highlight definition range.

• The Translucent diffuser transforms harsh light into soft, creating a gentle wrap around effect. Use the disk as a pass through diffuser for a well placed source in a set when Plexiglas and large panels are not practical for the assignment.

• The lightweight steel spring frame twists and folds to 1/3 of its original open diameter and fits into its own small storage case, ready for opening flat as a light modifier in a snap. The use of a stand with a disk holder or VAL is recommended especially when working alone or with multiple disks.

Good reflector set. ( So far so good,, Great buy for the $$) One thing, when you get it out of it's carry bag, keep a hold of it, and take a GOOD look at how its folded up.

( Materials, yes, but construction time and all that,,woooee..less you got the time.. I don't ) One last thing, no handles, so if you are shooting without a assistant, get yourself a clamp set up on a extra light stand, ect. cause this one's a wee bit big to hold single handed...and its a sail in the wind, so sandbag your light stand clamp holder!

Beautiful Lighting and very portable

The reflector is very portable and easy to use. I use it to bounce my flash into and to reflect natural light into my subject. I have used it indoors and outdoors and at special events. It folds up neatly and is light weight and easy to carry

Reflecting on a great product

By

from Fort Collins,Colorado  -  Pro Photographer

I often cover a lot of ground on event assignments, so ease of use a light weight are important. I love the versatility. The gold / silver reflector is a nice effect. I'm still learning how to best manage light with this reflector, but so far I'm very pleased.

Nice product in a compact size.

By

from Atlantic Beach, FL  -  Photo Enthusiast

Like the small size. There are times whn you nee a small reflector and this ne does it. The gold face has a nice gold/white pattern that tones down the gols cast very nicely.

Love it indoor for soft light portraiture and full body shots. Love it outside to filter the sun light. Easily portable, packable, storable. Great light modifier.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
TERRY K  Good buy, and very versatile.
Jim G  Instructions for folding?
DELMARK J  Hi Jim.. It all depends on what you're lighting, or using the reflector to fill. I use mine for portraits mostly, in a natural lighting setting; sometimes with strobe. I would hold it above my head, imitating how you would light the subject with a strobe. From a 45 degree angle.
Keneishia G  Are there 5 separate reflectors or are they combined on both sides?
JOSE MARCOS P  they are combined Keneishia :) black and silver, gold and white and the translucent
