I picked up some foam boards from Office Max to use as photographic light reflectors. Nilla (Crystal Bear) made a nice subject. I also picked up some black fabric to use as a background. The white background was just two of the boards that worked great to more evenly light the subject with soft light.
I got Jasmine to stand there for enough time for this quick shot before she ran off. But the reflector on the floor really helped to light her eyes up. In fact if you look closely you can see the rectangle shape reflected in her eyes.
