I like the idea of the reflector. My only concern is throwing so much light on the subject's face that they squint. The scene we have selected will have the camera facing pretty much exactly Northeast, so no matter what, the sun won't be directly behind the subject. I'd like to take this in the early morning for the light, but we usually don't get good clouds around here until the evening, so odds are that's when we'll shoot.

The more I think about this, I think I'm thinking too much about this. What I need to do is get out and shoot the damned shot.

Thanks for your thoughts!
Can't you dial down the flash...find what works.
