The following video gives step-by-step instruction for using foamcore and tinfoil to make tools for reflecting, bouncing, and absorbing light when photographing. You can use these reflectors to direct light to particular parts of a scene, and to fill in shadow areas, and can use other materials to absorb light in situations where you want to block or lessen the effects of light.
