Quick Tip: Size Matters
Tip: A soft key light is a beautiful thing. It evens out skin bumps and age lines, taking years off your subject’s face. In a studio, we use big softboxes. In the great outdoors, a big white reflector does the same job. The bigger the softbox/white reflector, the softer the light. Silver & gold reflectors are a slightly softer version of a mirror. The added size means added stop and coverage area.
