Very nice, that bounce is perfect. Warm light and side lighting give your skin a lot of texture. Always use available light when possible, Natural light>Flash

Thank you szurinaga. Without the reflector i turn into a silhouette. Definitely a great tool to use and to avoid using unnatural light.

Great shot with fine lighting on the face. Have no reflectors myself, but must try them, if I see this...
