Natural Reflectors Part 1 of 3: SNOW

Over the next few weeks we’d like to share how to get amazing photos with natural light using natural reflectors.

Most people don’t carry big reflectors to take a selfie, so today we’ll be sharing one of our three favorite ways to be cheaters…as if you had a reflector with you! (But if you are interested in using a reflector read our how to.)

In honor of the snow storm we encountered in Ohio this past month we made SNOW our number 1 reflector. Seriously though, it’s our favorite reflector, especially on a cloudy day. A huge blanket of snow on the ground with a white sky overhead gives the most beautiful, soft, even lighting. If only Seattle got more…

Erik’s reflector bottom left works just like the snow on the ground…

If you get the chance to photograph in snow, make sure you’re in shade if it’s sunny so that the reflection isn’t too intense.

Erik’s parent’s dog had to get in on the modeling action too.
