| p.1 #1 · Size and color of reflector |
I知 just starting to focus on studio photography which involves strobes, flashlights, umbrella, soft boxes, and back-drop. I found that I知 having hard time dealing with shadows, however the more I practice and the more I read about digital studio photography, I think I have a feeling that I finally am able to solve my problem.
The first thing that I know is to move subjects away (approx. 5ft.) from the wall or from the back-drop. The second thing that I learn but I haven稚 tried is to use reflectors, and here痴 my big question. What is the proper size of reflector that I need? Let say that I知 taking a picture containing about 15 people in 20x30ft. room, again what is the proper size for the reflector that I need? Is the bigger better?
As we all know there are many sizes and colors (white, silver, gold, etc.) of reflectors available in the market, what color that commonly or mostly use in studio photography? Assuming that I take a picture in tungsten or in florescent ambient light environment, again which color of reflector that I suppose to use? Lastly, when do I have to use a white reflector? (sorry for the dumb questions)
Ooh..I forgot one thing, does the color of a wall have an impact with the lighting?
Any advice or suggestions, I知 greatly appreciated. Thank you.
