Bouncing light without a reflector - Chris Hanley tells us how to bounce light onto a subject without a reflector.
Chris Hanley is a photographer who specialises in weddings and portraits. He likes to approach his work differently to other photographers and has recently started to do "cherish the dress shoots" a backlash to the harsh trash the dress shoots that are now popular. You can learn more about him and his work at Chris Hanley.
