The 24" 5-In-1 Reflector from Studio Essentials offers convenient options for photographers and videographers to affect the color and quality of the light. A reversible sleeve has gold, silver, black, and white surfaces that zip around a translucent white disc.

The gold side provides a late afternoon sun look while the silver bounces a cooler, more contrasty look with an emphasis on highlights and specularity. The white side provides a soft, neutral reflectance that's great for filling in shadows and raising the tonal value of the shot. The black side provides negative reflectance or absorption of light. Use it to block light or subtract reflected light and create shadows or a lighting ratio. Used on its own, the translucent disc will quickly diffuse a harsh light source or reduce shadows and contrast in midday sunlight. The 5-in-1 sets up immediately and folds down quickly to one third its open size for storage and transport.

Diffuser

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

Soft Sun

Soft Sun is a weaved blend of silver and gold reflective material. This unique surface casts a warm soft glow of light without the harshness and overly-orange color cast of traditional gold reflectors. Soft Sun is best used outside during the golden hour when the setting sun naturally casts a warmer light.

Silver

Increases specular highlights, adds contrast, and creates defined shadows. Being the most reflective surface, the silver reflector can evenly fill in shadows made by the sun when used up close, and can project light farther than other reflective surfaces.

White

Arguably the most flattering reflective surface because of the soft quality of light, white reflectors cast very soft, even light on your subjects, which helps smooth out skin tones and imperfections. Because 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. White can also be used to create a clean background for small product and macro photography.

Black

Used to block, cut light altogether, or to absorb reflected light, this surface can be used to completely block out directional light, like the sun, to even out your exposure, or to limit the amount of reflected light from your primary light source, creating strong shadows and a dramatic look to your images. Black can also be used to create a clean background for small product and macro photography.
