My new homemade light reflectors!

Hey everyone! For ages now I wanted to make these "homemade light reflectors" so that I have more light in my room when I take photos.
Well, I ran out of aluminium foil, so I only made two small ones.

Here they are and here are two photos to show the results:

Well, in conclusion I don't recommend these if you are a very dedicated photographer/professional cause they aren't that great. But for a beginner like me, they're fine.

Hope you all enjoy your day! Photoholic. Pin It


  1. Hey! This is so clever ! Good idea man ! ;P

  2. Love this idea - I'm going to make one too!

  3. This is a clever idea and makes a big difference to the image.

  4. this is a really great tip! I once left my reflector at home and had to shoot food for someone, and I made a reflector like this out of foil and cardboard and it worked JUST as good as the one I had paid for!

    1. Thank you for your comment! Your right, these reflectors are very helpful and so handy for people who don't have real ones! I think I'm going to make bigger ones soon, so that I can use them for portraits too.
      Hope you have a great day!


Thank you for leaving me a comment! I always enjoy reading them.
