For today's TSL lesson, The Slanted Lens·are shooting a commercial with Joel Ackerman of Ackermania Creative out at the old LA Zoo in Los Angeles. They are in a mummy-infested cave with a dirty toilet. Jay P. is going to show you how to use two reflectors to double-bounce light.

Their obstacle is that they have their talent inside the cave with little natural light getting in. All three cave openings are in the shade, and they are lighting with reflectors. They will need to bounce the light around a corner to get good light. Let's take a look at how they will accomplish this.
