The “Hylow 5-in-1 Series” reflectors are durable and long lasting. They feature three reflective sides (white, silver and gold), a black absorbing panel and a diffuser scrim. All of which offer a different type of light quality. This reflector is also foldable, which makes it travel-friendly and compact to carry. A carry bag is included.
This reflector uses reversible reflector sides. The cover of the reflector can be unzipped and reversed to get to the different reflective sides.
Silver reflects a lot more light than the white side. The reflection tends to be a bit harsher and contrasty as well. It’s therefore particularly useful when combining it with low-powered lights or when the sun is at its weakest. The silver side can be a bit blinding for your models — in this case, use the white for a more modest reflection.
The white side reflects a more modest amount of light. The reflection is also a bit softer. Using the white side is a better option when working with high-powered strobes or when using it in harsh sunlight.
The gold side works very well on darker skin. It’s also useful to recreate a sunrise/set quality of light.
The black panel is used to absorb stray light. This is particularly useful as a lighting flag or gobo. The black panel can also be used opposite your main light source, to increase the contrast on your subject.
Scrim / Diffusing Panel:
The scrim is a near see-through material that is used to diffuse direct light. This can be used outdoors to soften harsh sunlight or can be used in combinition with any artificial light sources that can’t be modified with softboxes.
