A 5-in-1 Reflector
A 5-in-1 reflector is about as lightweight of a camera accessory as there is. After all, it weighs just a few ounces.
And if you’ve never worked with a set of reflectors before, they collapse together into a single, flat, circular package that you can slip in the back of your camera bag or even just clip to the exterior of your bag for easy access.
But the beauty of these reflectors isn’t just that they are easily stored away and super lightweight – they are incredibly versatile too, as Eskild Fors explains in the video below:
Use the gold reflector to warm up the tones in the shot or the silver reflector to brighten up your subject.
The white reflector can be used to fill in shadows on a model’s face while the black material is used to enhance shadows.
There’s even a translucent reflector that can be used as a diffuser to soften the light, resulting in an image with less contrast and more even lighting.
And all that comes in a single, very inexpensive package. It’s hard to beat that!
