Place the diffuser between the sun and your subject to eliminate harsh light.
Use a gold reflector to fill in unwanted shadows while adding warmth to skin tones.
When lighting on your subject is too bright, use a black reflector to subtract light from skin tones.
Use a silver reflector to add cool tones and specular highlights to your subject.
Use a white reflector to fill in unwanted shadows while skin tones remain neutral.
