u will need two hands for the camera and a third hand for your reflector....

better get an assistant if you want to do a proper shoot..... ;)

depends which angle you wanna point your reflector... but after 5pm meaning you may only have about effectively 30-45mins of a low angle lighting... maybe can use your flash to reflect...

in any situation, any shoots... if u are comfortable of bringing all the barang barang you have around the place, feel free to bring... no ones stopping...

Question to ask yourself,

1) (during the shoot) dam, I should have brought .........
2) (after the shoot, when you see the result) would it have turn out better if i use .........

Can you live with a/m regrets?

If yes, dont bring.
If no, bring.

3) can you do magic with ps and dont mind spending the time to do it?

If yes, dont bring.
If no, bring.

Bring them along.

I tried once - set the camera on the tripod, adjust everything, used the build-in timer. Then I hold the reflector to play with the light. Worth the effort if you don't have assistant.

indoor or outdoor shoot?
If indoor, it is quite common to use tripod.
But agree that it may be a hassle to setup in the first place.

If you have cable release, or remote trigger; set up
the tripod, observe the model's expression, and
fire the shutter when u deem fit.

The result can be unexpected but satisfying and definitely fun.
