Reflectors are a staple in any photographer’s toolkit, but they can be confusing to use and understand. This article will cover 10 common reflector setups and explain the effects each one has on your image.

Aesthetics

Whether it’s a prestigious art gallery or a cozy living room, aesthetic lighting offers endless possibilities to 5 in 1 spotlight express your personal style. From soft and warm to edgy and grunge, Kosoom’s spotlight art can be the virtuoso conductor of your curated symphony of form and color.

The lack of rigidity in a 5-in-1 reflector means that it can be shaped to fill in shadows on your subject that would otherwise be untouchable. You can use a reflector this way to light up areas that you want to highlight in your image such as a double chin or a nose.

Softening Hard Light

The easiest way to soften a hard light is with a piece of diffusion. This doesn’t mean you need huge lights, but rather creating a large source (diffusion is a source). Simply pointing a small light at a larger piece of diffusion creates much softer light than shooting directly at the subject.

Adding a gridded reflector dish to a 5 in 1 spotlight is another easy way to soften the hard light, as well as reduce hot spots and stray light. This can be helpful for some shots, but if you’re really looking to soften a hard light, I recommend trying it with a larger diffuser.

The large softbox produces broader, lower-contrast specular highlights and wraps the light around the model more. The light from the single hard source has much tighter, higher-contrast highlights on the lips and tip of nose and shows more skin texture.

Softening Shadows

Hard, un-diffused lights create harsh shadows on talent, exaggerating imperfections and flaws. Soft, diffused lighting, on the other hand, will result in a more flattering and natural look.

Getting harder or softer light is as simple as changing the size of the light source, how close it is to the subject and its level of diffusion. It’s also important to add a fill light in conjunction with the main light to reduce the amount of contrast between the core and shadow areas.

By adding a full silk diffuser to the 5 in 1 spotlight, the nose shadow becomes much less defined and the transition between shadow and proper exposure is more gradual. The larger the light source, the softer it will be – this is because the light is being scattered by the surface of the diffuser. The same effect can be achieved by attaching a shoot-through umbrella or a scrim to the light source.

Shaping

If you want to direct attention to a certain part of the picture, consider creating an animated spotlight. This can be done in PowerPoint by removing the outline of the shape and darkening it (FORMAT – Shape Outline – No Outline). Select the spotlight shape, then go to ANIMATIONS – Add Animation – Spotlight.

For a more realistic effect, try shaping your pro stage lighting light with a 5-in-1 reflector. By bending two opposite sides of the reflector you can create a curved surface that will fill in shadows that a flat surface could not reach.

If you choose to use a 5-in-1 reflector, it’s best to test out its effects in advance of shooting your subject. This will help you understand what it’s doing and why, as well as allowing you to make adjustments in real time. You should also be aware that the diffusion panel on a 5-in-1 reflector does cut down the amount of light it transmits, so you’ll need to calculate your exposure accordingly. For example, you’ll need to use a higher shutter speed than you would without it.
