The challenge is to use a reflector, as I do not have one I did a little research and one make-shift item you can use is a car reflector. So after I persuaded my model I took two shots, one without the reflector and one with. I had Henk stand with his back to the sun and I place the reflector to one side. Not sure if this achieved the desired effect, but it was interesting. I also tried wearing a white t-shirt there was very little change. It was hard for Henk not to squint as he wears glasses.

I think it definitely worked…and I love that you used the car’s reflector.
And I think it worked too! To tell you the truth, I don’t even know what a car reflector is! What I like about your result is it doesn’t look like it was an overwhelming amount of light, but enough to help direct the focus of the photograph to Henk’s face rather than let it blend as much in with the background.
That is cool. I have heard of some people using car reflectors. Essentially it is the same thing. I think it looks great.
yes, I was not sure if it would work, and how much to reflect but it is a beginning, like to see what happens on a still life inside. Cheers
