I have been trying to use a reflector for some outside work for the last couple of years, I am still not happy with the way things look. I have used silver, gold and white, I have tried to feather & diffuse. I still get dark images or uncomfortable people from the amount of light in there eyes. I would like some suggestions, online tutorials or other instructions.
Thanks in advance.

I have run into that same thing while doing beach shoots. The only thing I have found to do is ask the model to close her eyes and count 1 2 3 and open them for the shot. It's a pain but it works for the most part.

The 1-2-3 thing does work. You also don't have to have the reflector in direct light to bounce light back. I don't know the exact circumstances of your use, but I see some guys out in direct sun the whole time. Try it in some shade on a sunny day and see what happens.

Of course, you could also attend one of JT's workshops. He teaches a lot of good reflector techniques.
