One of the oldest and still most popular means of lighting a set is by taking a reflective surface and redirecting sunlight or artificial light exactly where it is needed.
The "hard" side of the reflector will reflect the light almost exactly as it hits the board, while the "soft" side will soften the light as it redirects it.
The Standard reflector measures 42" x 42" (107x107cm). Made of honeycomb material sandwiched between two sheets of aircraft aluminum which is then set into an aluminum frame.
The frame is then mounted into a yoke which has a 1-1/8" pin to fit a Combo Stand and a braked pivot.
The Standard reflector is made with a shiny silver paper glued on the "hard" side and silver leaf squares on the "soft side".
