Week 10 of the Photography Awesomsauce Winter Photo Challenge was to use your reflector.  I generally don’t use my reflector during sessions for a number of reasons.  The biggest reason is I find it challenging to hold in place without an assistant. Luckily, today I had some great assistants thanks to my husband and boys.  We are having some major wind gusts today and I needed all hands on deck to steady the reflector (aka – a sail!).

I had a camera store owner tell me once a reflector is pointless and that I should use fill flash.  After this experiment today I totally DISAGREE!!  Look at the light – the big beautiful ball of light reflected on my sweet girls gorgeous face (yes, I’m biased but you got to admit she’s pretty cute).  This was so much fun and I would totally use this setup again!  Guess I need to work on having an assistant…

 

I’m going to call this photo challenge week another success!   As I mull through all the things I want to do in my business, I want to also capture more fun pictures like this!  I have to use my little girl as a model more often, too! 🙂

 

Photo details:

Canon 5DMark III, 24-70L 2.8, f5.0, ISO 1600, SS 1/1600 (wow – didn’t realize I was this high… my new camera rocks even at ISO 1600! )
