If you were shooting at the local lake, needed a reflector and had the money to purchase a California Sunbounce Pro 4x6 foot reflector, which fabric would you use. I would rather purchase something that I can do full length portraits and be able to weigh it down so it dont blow away. Its a reason why sail boats work well.

I am leaning on the silver or soft silver as there will be often very little shade available.

Are you saying that you are going to be in bright sun and are going to reflect that into the eyes of your model? Might want to rethink that.

Forgot to mention that I do have a scrim. Its a Wescott disc scrim that I would be using on a stand. I could do the strobist approach but I kind of want to stay away from electronics and water.

In my experience, silver reflectors in bright sun are very hard on the model.

Only when they are reflecting bright lights.

I was thinking sunset on the beach or boat. Like you said the light is only harsh if the initial light is harsh. Energy cannot be created nor destroyed.

Then I think silver would be too specular.
