I'm a huge proponent of using natural reflectors (leveraging natural environmental elements that reflect light as opposed to a professional reflector) because they create dynamic light over a wide area. And by using them, I don't have to lug any extra gear around with me! I've been able to train my eyes to find natural reflectors and teach my subjects to pose in favorable ways that allow them to relax in front of my camera. If they can loosen up at the beginning of our session, then it’s up to me to coach them through the rest of our time together in a fun, organic way. I do this while making the best use of reflected light in their photographs, as I demonstrate in this video.
