From my shoot today with Model Melissa Cassera. Shot on the Princeton University campus. Melissa is a professional actress\model\dancer. She is also a lot of fun to shoot with. All comments welcome.
I use an inexpensive light stand, with a reflector attachment, but I also bring along an AB heavy duty stand in case the wind kicks up. All three items fit into a carry bag, which is not too bad to carry around. The 42" reflector itself folds to 13". I put the reflector in it's bag and I clip it to my backpack, so I do have a free hand while walking. When we arrive at a location that requires a bounce, I'll try to prop it on whatever is around, or I'll try to prop it on my camera bag. If this is unsuccessful, I break out the lightweight stand, and then the HD if needed. Too much wind and even the HD stand will not hold up.I have a reflector as well, but I haven't used it for outdoor shoots. How do you support it? Do you use it with a stand, or just lay it on the ground??? When I've used it indoors, I used a cheapy light stand, with a reflector attachment, and that seemed to work well. I don't know how well that would work outside on a windy day though.
