Today is a bright sunny day with blue skies. I planned to take the children our to take photos close to the church. The flowers are still not completely in bloom and sunlight was direct. To counter this and to be able to take the photos below, I asked my son to hold the white circular reflector for me to create a soft shadow and diffuse the sunlight.

The white circular reflector is easy to carry since we can twist and put it back in the case. It does not block sunlight but diffuses it nicely. The little helper however was a bit of a nuisance since he couldn’t stop taking it off or moving the branch.
