Reflectors working distance

Hi,

I would like to try some shots

1.exposed at direct sun

2. at very bright locations

(going to Greece for vacations).

How close should reflector be (which would be your starting point) to the face to light it up when backlight from sun?

A typical problem I have with reflectors is that I do not understand how much "light" subject needs and pretty much I end by giving red eyes to my subjects

any ideas?

Alex
