Day 21 of 365

Today I made M my subject as I tried out a new photo method. 
Instead of expensive reflectors sold as photo equipment, 
I bought sunshades normally used for the car. 
You know, those big shades you put in the windshield 
so your car doesn't get too hot while it is parked. 
M held the sunshade low to reflect the light from the window onto the dark side of her face
 for a lovely portrait. 
I will definitely be trying this again.


  1. Cool! I love the light reflectng on her hair!

  2. Nice technique and lovely picture. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Well done Sharon. I know that a reflection can add a lot on a picture

  4. Lovely portrait! And a great tip - thanks.

  5. Wow - well done. Gorgeous pic of M and the light tip is a great idea. I am going to have to start challenging myself with my photographs..so much to learn!!

  6. A white bed sheet around a board is also very good to use as a reflection board.
    More light makes so much difference in a picture.
    This one you took from M is the proof.
    Very nice picture Sharon.


  7. Lovely picture. I learnt so much reading the comments above.
