That site talks about reflectors. I would like to start using reflectors but without an assistant I really can't unless I buy some sort of reflector holder that is easy to travel with and easy to set-up. I have only seen a few that would work and the cost is $200-$300. So its just one of those things that is added to my "wish" list. :)

Still a very good site.

Wescott makes background/reflector stands that are around $70. I have several and have used them commercially... they work great.

The Olympus Digital School has all kinds of great tutorials and how-tos... :)

Now if only I had the attention span to read more.

Thanks for the link. I seen one that I wanted that the whole pole was flexable (seen it in Popular Photography Magazine) and it was going for $200.

hey J, i dont know if it helps but you can make some reflectors out of sheets of foam core and tape em together on location and then break then down again for travel... i have seen guys who make them into a 6 foot tall "V" that is self standing.. just an idea.
