    Q. What type of reflectors have been used in the Film? Discuss. (05)
    A reflector is simply a tool that reflects light. A reflector doesn’t create light like a flash does, it simply redirects the existing light, or sometimes redirects the light from a flash or studio strobe. That’s important to understand for two reasons. The first is that the light from a reflectors isn’t any brighter than what is already there, so you can’t use them to light up a night portrait unless you are also using a flash or other light source as well. The second point to understand is that the quality of the light will match the quality of the light that’s in the scene. For example, if you’re shooting at sunset, the light that bounces off the reflector will have that same orange hue.

    But, there are a few exceptions. Reflectors come in different types and colours, and the colour of the reflective surface may change the light that’s bounced back. A traditional white reflector simply bounces the light, and the light is nice and soft. A silver reflector doesn’t change the color of the light much, but it is a bit brighter than light reflected off a white one. Gold reflectors are designed to change the color of the light by warming it up a bit with an orange tone.
    Since reflectors don’t create light, their primary purpose is to fix shadows. If you are shooting a portrait outdoors during the day, a reflector can be used to fix odd shadows on the face, or even to prevent a backlit subject from becoming a silhouette. Basically, a reflector is used in this way as a replacement for the fill flash.
