Homemade reflectors can be just as effective as the expensive ones you buy at the camera store. Instead of paying $50 at CAMERA JOES, spend $5.00 on a piece of cardboard, styrofoam or plywood that is at least 30 x 30″. Styrofoam works best because it is already white and very light. If you want a more reflective surface, use aluminum foil to cover the styrofoam. If you want a gold reflector, just add some gold spray paint on top of the aluminum foil.
