    The bad guys DO wear black, sometimes a straight-on portrait makes a great statement.
    Setting sun behind the subject; Whittier California. 3 ft reflector for fill on the face; 35mm F2, Fuji X-t2.

    Really good for a street shot, I guess the time to set up a reflector made a lot of difference.

    Thanks, actually I had an assistant hold it :) only way to do it ! - If it wasnt for the reflector he would be just a black blob.. the sun was so bright directly behind him...

    Nice work with the light. I don't shoot portraits but this looks like a good one to me.

    Great job, that was tricky lighting and you nailed it. Did you use the warm side or the silver side of the reflector, it is perfect.

    Thanks Joe, Actually used the silver side... When the sun is this low its already going to be way super red, so if you use the golden side it'll turn the subject into a tomato, unless you want the background to be really cold looking... If it was like the middle of the day I would have to go gold side though...
