Photo Tips

When you don't have all your equipment with you... a reflector,  just go to Staples and buy a cardboard display board that is white on the inside!  ONLY $3.75 when you are in a bind.

This whole story came about when I was asked to do an impromptu family shoot in Dallas, Texas over a Christmas holiday.  Thinking I was just going away on vacation, I left most of my equipment at home…including my reflector.  Well, not wanting to buy a new reflector, I did the next best thing and bought a display board from Staples.  Just make sure it's white on the inside.  It's lightweight and easy to handle.  After I was done with the shoot, I gave the display board to my niece to use for an upcoming project.  Bahda-bing!  Bahda-boom!

Oh, and by the way, it was cold there!  Esther did a great job working the reflector for me while bundled up.
