    I let my friend borrowed my Sb-600. Being strobeless, I had to improvise. I had afternoon window light coming from the camera left. I had a reflector (ivory baby blanket) on the camera right. I probably got too much reflection from the poor's man reflector. CC welcome.

  2. you can easily take down the hot spots by getting your paintbrush out, selecting a skin tone, and then painting over those spots at about 14% or something low. It does a good job at both putting some skintone down as well as keeping the detail there.

    I don't know if I'd use a white blanket, however get some foam core (or gator board), or even some styrofoam sheets from a local hardware store. Both of those work and are used by countless pro shooters out there.
