Reflectors & Scrims

Both of these reflectors double as scrims (light diffusers) to soften direct sunlight. I have two and I often use both during a photo shoot (one to diffuse the direct light coming in through the window, and the other to reflect light into the dark side of the subject).

Perfectly Sized for a Window

A Larger Size for Doorway

Accessories that will make your life easier

Handy Clamps

Clamps to secure your reflector, fabric, etc. These are a necessity in every photographer's kit.

Reflector Stand

If it gets frustrating trying to prop up your reflector - and take photos at the same time - consider this reflector stand which allows you to prop your reflector hands-free! (Warning - you're getting a little techy here!)

DISCLAIMER: I do not make or sell any of these products, and these brands are not affiliated with Wellness Stock Shop. I may, however, receive a teeny-tiny compensation if you purchase through these links.

Lighting Options

When you can't always count on natural window light - especially during winter - you'll want to add in some "external" lighting. Here are a few rules of thumb with lighting:

  1. NEVER use your on-camera flash (leaves harsh shadows)
  2. NEVER use lamp light/overhead lighting (leaves a yellow/orange hue)
  3. Look for bulbs balanced for "daylight"
  4. Use a diffuser to soften the light

Here are some suggestions for lighting without having to get too techy or drop loads of money on pro gear. Please note, I have not personally used these products, but I have used products made by this brand and it's a reputable "discount" brand.

LIGHTS ONLY: These table-top lights have the reflective "bucket" shape and daylight-balance bulbs. (You'll want to shine these through some type of diffuser.)

FULL STUDIO SETUP: Same link, but select the style: "PS-03+24 tent" for floor-standing lights and a "Light Tent" which is handy and acts as a diffuser.
