We have all been there, we setup our reflector outside only to have the wind start to play games with us. It can be really annoying and is a common problem for low-budget indie film crews with only a few people. Well today I wanted to feature a great DIY reflector designed to combat this exact issue, making it perfect for outdoor video and photo work when people to hold reflectors are at a premium.

This is a great reflector that I plan on using myself in my own video work in the coming months. They are cheap and easy to put together (as you can see in the video), so if anything happens to them they are easy to replace if need be.
What are your thoughts on this DIY reflector build? Is it something that you may use in the future? Let us know in a comment below.
