Another great idea… build a big reflector

This quick helpful video will show just how easy it is to make your own light source. Many people don’t realize that a big reflector, placed directly opposite the main light source (a window, an open door, or a studio flash)  takes the place of a second light.  And they don’t scare the pet yet form a natural barrier to help keep the pet in front of the camera.

A large reflector like this will significantly fill in the shadow side of the face and keep you from losing all the detail. Angled carefully, they can also put a nice catchlight in your subjects eyes. And they’re SUPER CHEAP!  So start  building yours today!
