Modifier Monday: ePhoto REF4366 43x 66-Inches Extra Large Oval 5 in 1 Reflector Panel Kit

As a compliment to my Turkey Day Modifier, today I'll throw a oversize reflector into the mix.  To recap, last Thursday I recommended a Gold\Silver striped umbrella for sunrise or sunset shooting. I also suggested using a gold/silver striped reflector for fill.  If you need even more fill, this oversize oval reflector makes a nice add on.  And if you want to stick to your gold\silver striped motif, put the silver on one half and the gold cover on the other and throw it on the ground out of frame in front of your subject, tilt it slightly with your foot or camera bag for front fill.    

Shooting mid day, not during the "Golden Hour"?  Use the oversize translucent  frame to soften and spread direct sunlight, or use the black cover as a flag or background.  Round reflectors are great, but sometimes when your trying to do full body shots you need something a bit larger.
