If ever you are stuck for a light source during an outdoor shoot during the day, it can be very handy to have a reflector on hand. They are compact, light and easy to pack and unpack. They are not expensive and come in multiple colors like gold, silver and white for diffusing the sun light. Even as a solo shooter with a friend or a model a reflector is easy to manage and use by attaching to another tripod or lit stand. Follow all the madness here, or sign up for the notifications here.
