Shooting Using Reflectors and Natural Sun Light

In this video, photographer Jay P. Morgan from the website the Slanted Lens demonstrates how to shoot using a relativly simple setup made out of  natural sun light and reflectors to add highlights and interest.

Reflectors are a great source of light for both stills and video. Using a translucent reflector to soften hard sunlight and a gold white reflector to reflect into your set for pleasing highlights is a great place to start. When you use the sun as a backlight you can control it with your exposure. Then you will add the highlights on the talent.
