This is a Lastolite reversible, collapsible reflector. Designed for use in the studio or on location, it adds light and color to to shadow areas. Silver is the most reflective surface, especially useful when competing with a strong light source causing very deep shadows. Silver is so highly reflective that it can appear to be the main source if necessary. Gold, though not as reflective as Silver has impressive fill capabilities and adds warmth to scenes that might otherwise have a blue cast, such as open shade.
The reflector has a sturdy spring-steel frame that is covered by the fabric. With a twist of both wrists (and a little practice), it collapses to 1/3 its open size. It comes with a nylon storage bag.
