Photo Tricks: DIY Light Reflector

by Megan Hoeppner

This summer, whether you're staying indoors to keep cool or you're out enjoying the sunshine, the use of a light reflector can make a good photo great for when it comes time to scrapbook! Great photos can make your scrapbook pages shine. Here's a few simple tips on making and using a light reflector in your photography.

Check out this image, taken by Creating Keepsakes magazine Dream Team member, Kim Watson. The first image was taken without a reflector, casting harsh shadows on that sweet face. In the second shot, Kim positioned a reflector in front of her subject (towards the incoming light), bouncing the light and brightening his face.
