Time to reflect
A fold-out reflector is really useful for bouncing window light back on to your subject. Most come with matt and silvered surfaces to change the character of the light. But if you’re not going to use a reflector regularly, you don’t need to rush out to buy one for this project. A piece of white card will bounce light back towards the baby, removing hard shadows and reducing contrast, or for a more reflective effect you can cover the card with foil.
