  18. 18. TIPS FOR NATURAL LIGHT<br />A portrait at noon is very harsh lighting. Try sunrise or sunset.<br />When indoors use available light from all sources (windows, doors, cracks)<br />If your subject is outdoors, an overcast day is best. If the day is sunny, make sure to use a reflector or electronic flash to fill in shadows underneath the eyes<br />

  47. 47. TIPS FOR USING A REFLECTOR<br />Use a reflector to fill in shadows<br />When outdoors can use the reflection of the sun. When indoors use the reflection of the main light source<br />Gold – creates warm tones and makes your subject’s skin appear a bit more tanned or golden (warm)<br />Silver – Neutral in color although brighter than white and skin appears cooler<br />White  - Neutral color effect. Gathers the existing light and softly fills in shadows to light your subject <br />
  48. 48. tin foil (ALUMINUM) does NOT make a good reflector unless your subject is blind or wants to be.<br />
