Great Portrait Lighting With Just One Reflector

I've always been an advocate for simple lighting in photographs, especially in portraits. I even wrote a recent article in Digital Photo Pro all about lighting simplicity and working with one or two lights, and also wrote a few months back about high-key portrait lighting in which I utilized one light (or just a reflector and the sun) to make beautiful portraits. So I'm sure to love a post like this one from DIY Photography, which is all about making great portraits with nothing more than a single reflector. The site is usually geared more to promoting gear, homemade and storebought, but this how-to video from Sasser Stills shows just how great some simple sunlight and a reflector can be. In fact, it's arguably the most beautiful portrait lighting you can find anywhere. Well worth a look if for no other reason than to serve as a reminder that you can find great light anywhere, and make it even better with the simplest of tools.
