    I am trying to photograph people outdoors and I would like a warmer look to the picture. Do I need to use a gold reflector. Please see the following website for an expample of what I am trying to accomplish.

    Most of the outdoor photos on the website have warm glow to the picture.

    You could use a gold reflector, use a warming filter, or shoot during the golden hour which is one hour after sunrise or one hour before sunset :) Hope that helps.

    I swear this has been posted before but maybe my mind is just slipping... (entirely possible)...

    If you have the option on your camera you can change the White Balance to Cloudy or Overcast and it'll warm up the pics a bit.
