Tri-Flector – The light reflector designed by a photographer for photographers
Simply put, the Tri-flector was borne out of frustration. For many years, Leicester photographer Stu Williamson struggled to find a commercial lighting reflector that met his exacting requirements. First of all, he found that they were a pain to set up. They were also difficult to adjust. And finally, they were inherently unstable. As all photographers know to their cost, time spent setting up is time lost shooting. For such an essential accessory, the options were certainly far from ideal.
So Stu invented his own.
He first brought us the widely acclaimed original Tri-flector in the 90s which is still being faithfully used by many photographers today. And yet, ever the perfectionist, as good as the original was, Stu was always looking for ways it could be improved.
Introducing the 21st Century Tri-flector
As a result, he now brings you the new 21st Century Tri-flector, the light reflector with even more benefits to the modern, creative photographer.
As all photographers know, timing and quick decision making is always of the essence. Hence, the new model is designed with these issues in mind. The new light reflector is therefore even more versatile and robust than the previous version. You will find it a breeze to set up and fine tune as well as being very stable and robust. What else would any photographer want from a lighting reflector? OK, the ability to reflect light might also be useful. But, rest assured, this is yet another area where the Tri-flector really does shine (pun intended). This mix of excellent reflection, versatility and ease of use makes this one of today’s most useful photographic accessories.
Many photographers struggle daily with lighting setups, panels falling down, messy positioning and fiddly adjustments. If you’re one of them, give Stu’s reflector a try. Whatever your needs, you’ll find that perfecting your reflective lighting just got a whole lot easier. Take a look at the video below to see what we mean.
What does the Tri-flector do?
The Tri-flector is a highly versatile photographic lighting reflector. It does as its name suggests. It reflects light off three specially designed double-sided panels.
Both sides of the panels are reflective, one side being silver, the other being silver/white. Should you find the silver side to be too bright and reflective for your situation, simply flip it over and use the white side which gives a softer feel.
Such is the versatility of this modern reflector that it will allow you to reflect light almost anywhere you want. You will find it quick and easy to set up and just as easy to adjust. As a result, you’ll spend less time setting up and more time taking photographs. But, above all, your photographs will be given new energy and vibrancy!
How to use the Tri-flector
You can use the Tri-flector for almost any photography situation, indoors or outdoors and with natural light or artificial light. In fact, you’ll be able to use it in any situation where you need reflective lighting control.
What’s the difference between the Tri-flector and the Triflector?
Nothing. Triflector (without the ‘-‘) is just a spelling variation although Tri-flector is the correct way of spelling it.
