So if you're new to the reflector's time to jump in y'all.  While I'm known as a big time advocate of LED lighting and off camera flash using monolights....we must NEVER forget how important reflectors are in a true photographer's work.  

I must admit that it's something I didn't hear about a lot when I came up in the world of photography.  Everyone was either obsessed with led lights, strobes, or natural light.  Reflectors didn't seem to get a lot of love.

So as my career progressed and I learned more and more about how photography can and should be approached, my love for reflectors and diffusers grew.  I used HUGE, big, medium and small. And truthfully all of them have their purpose and place.

Today I'm talking about the 8 in 1 Lastolite Tri Flip that I like to use for quick use primarily in areas where I don't have a lot of space or don't have a lot of time to set up bigger reflectors.  Here are the reasons I really like using this reflector kit:

  • Price- it's relatively cheap.  About $100 for the entire set of 8
  • Quality- it's well built and holds up better in wind than a traditional round flimsy reflector
  • Handle- I REALLY like that it has a handle which makes it easy for either the model or the photographer or assistant to hold.
  • Small- it folds up very small and is easy to transport.  Easily fits into a carry on suitcase for a flight

Below are some images taken with the different fabrics.  Please take a look at the video to get a better idea as to how they all looked and the light they produced.

I hope this helps.  Please take a look at the pics below and if you feel like it'll work for you there's a link below to order.
