I enjoy using reflectors when shooting on location but I find it's a bit restrictive. There are many things that can be done with a couple of reflectors alone but so many more options open up when you just add one strobe head. In this follow-up to last week's lesson on "Reflectors", The Slanted Lens will take a look at using one strobe head in addition to our reflectors. This is the way I like to shoot on location. With a couple of reflectors and a portable strobe unit I can better control the lighting situations I may face on location. When the sun does not cooperate, the strobe does. It's there as a fail safe for whatever situation I may be in. I love the look. Let's look at using strobes with reflectors. Good luck and keep on click'n! Jay P. Morgan
