Westcott 2011 43in. Optical White Satin Collapsible with Removable Black Cover
This Westcott 43" White Satin Umbrella has a removable black backing, so that it may be used as a "shoot-through", makeshift softbox. It has a collapsible shaft, which makes it very compact for packing away in your location case.Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any tungsten or flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior will soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. A white umbrella without a black backing may also be used as a makeshift softbox, although the use of the light will not be as efficient as with a lightbox.Choosing umbrella size is determined by the size of the subject, and the strength of the light supply being used. Choosing an umbrella surface is as subjective as choosing a paint and brush.Suggested use: 1 or 2 person mid-length portrait.
