    Default Silver or White reflector for Portraits?

    As above. Do roughly describe your reflector of choice, if its DIY, or large or small one, with its rough dimensions. ThankS!

    Buy one. Dont make. The time costs of making one far exceeds buying. If budget, get 2nd hand. Get the 46" 5 in 1 type.

    Use silver or white for more natural look.

    OP or those online local websites.

    Good enough for starters.

    When shooting, make it a habit to open it first. Even if you dont see the need, place on the floor or nearby the model. Little amt of catchlights in the eyes, help to create the liveliness in the model.

    Gd luck.

    white is less harsh than silver.

    Silver for hazy day and indoor, white when sun is out.

    I think many of these foldable reflectors come as 5-in-1 sets, which will include white, silver and gold. Just try each one out, and see which suits what you're trying to achieve.

    i think that gold suits for white skin people. when we 'yellow' skin people use gold it make our skin more warm. but i use it still during beach or during some outdoor shoot to mtach the model outfit and theme.
