I have been playing around with macro photography this fall and have determined that a handheld reflector is pritty much a must in this work for natural looking exposures in harsh lighting using flash. I'm thinking of using a 6x6 inch board like cardboard, panelling, ect. wrapped with alumminum foil, this would I assume, give me a natural daylight effect from my sb28? I'm guessing 6x6 inches would be big enough since my working distance is no greater than two feet, plus easy to hold. Any input from experienced people who have experimented with reflectors would be appreciated.
