The 5-in-1 Reflector is the ultimate tool for reflective light control. 5-in-1 Reflectors feature a steel band covered with white translucent diffuser fabric, with a reversible slipcover that provide you with 4 additional light modifiers: Gold, Silver, White, and Black. Folding up to 1/3rd its original size, this versatile lighting tool is perfect for location work.

Diffuser
Softens the harsh, directional light of the sun (or any other light source), creating a more flattering and manageable light on your subject. Often times, simply softening and redirecting harsh sunlight is all that needs to be done to create stunning, natural portraits.

Gold
Used to mimic the warm tones of the setting sun. Casting a very warm glow of light, the gold side of a 5-in-1 reflector is best used outside during the golden hour when the setting sun is naturally very warm.

Silver
Increases specular highlights, adds contrast and creates defined shadows. Being the most reflective surface, the silver reflector is able to evenly balance out the harsh shadows of the sun when used up close, and is able to throw a lot of light over relatively long distances.

White
Arguably the most flattering reflective surface because of the soft quality of light it produces. White reflective surfaces cast very soft, even light on your subjects that help smooth out skin tones and imperfections. As white is not as reflective as silver, white reflectors need to be used at relatively close distances, and are ideal for close-up portraits and headshots.

Black
Used to block, or cut light altogether or to absorb reflected light. This surface can be used to completely block out directional light, like the sun, in order to even out your exposure, or it can be used to limit the amount of reflected light from your primary light source, creating strong shadows and a dramatic look to your images.

Our absolute favourite find was the Museo Sorolla, a celebration of the life and work of Joaquin Sorolla (1863-1923). The museum was once the home of this influential painter.
