Yes, We Bounce

Using available light for your photography isn't always easy. Especially not in the Belgian climate. As big fans of Mike Larson, we were of course easily persuaded to for a California Sunbounce. And, since we often get the question, what this big impressive shield (we opted for the sun-bounce pro) would really result in, we posted these photos. The pro allows us to light out a whole group, or to just let one individual jump out of it. The resulting light looks very natural, and can be a bit varied depending on which material/side you use (gold, silver, white,...).
One good tip though... if it is a windy day, let the heaviest person hold the screen...
Yes, you can go airborne with this :-)

I'd love to see a "no reflector" vs. a "reflector" series of photos so we can see a before and after.

Otherwise, these are nice photos but it's hard to determine the value of the reflector.

No worries, those will come up too ;-)
