I made this 4-way reflector some years ago but never really used it for much of anything. Pulled it out today and put it to the test, though it's inside and using lighting that isn't very strong. I'm guessing stronger light sources will yield more dramatic results.
Please don't mind the very crappy pic of the item lol I didn't feel like getting a superb shot of it :P Basically I took 4 lightweight fabrics.... white, shiny silver, shiny gold and matte black.... and sewed them onto this plastic stuff that comes in collapsible items like playtents/tunnels etc.... leaving the bottom open so you can reverse it. Silver and white on the outside, gold and black on the inside. Stability could be a bit better...maybe using a thicker plastic whatever it is... but it twists up to a super portable size.
I will have to try it again on a sunny day.... storms today and everything is overcast :P
What do you think though....worth finding a place in my camera bag for it??
It's subtle...but the white casts a slightly blue light, silver light, gold is yellow and the black seems to leave shadows intact but somehow brightens the lights?? Must be some level of reflective??
