In addition to the V-Flat portrait gear I previously covered, here’s another example of simple gear that you can use in your next gig: the bounce card / reflector.
Cinepro Studios was able to film a behind the scenes video of photographer Michael Sasser during one of his photo shoots. In the video, Sasser is taking photos of a female High School student for her senior portraits.
Using only a reflector, which is held by an assistant, Sasser was able to produce some beautiful and stunning shots.
Sasser just showed us that we don’t need expensive portrait gear and complicated setups to get amazing portraits.
A simple visit to Amazon will get you a reflector for around $20.00 USD. Assistant not included.
