Using silver reflectors is a great way to brighten faces on portraits.  Bright face are an essential component to a strong portrait.

The best place is to lay the reflector flat around midsection of the client.  I usually use a table if I don’t have a special holder.

Angle of the reflector is based on where the main light source is coming from.  The key is to have even light on the face.  This will help bring out catch lights in the eyes.

I don’t use the white or the gold reflectors.  They create really odd colors on the skin that are hard to work with in port editing.
