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.

This size is perfect for a 1 person head shot, or 3x4 ft product setup.

Fabrics are color balanced to all Photoflex soft boxes, panels and discs.

              I am a real estate photographer. This umbrella is really great for those tight areas where it's imperative to minimize shadows.

                  There is not much to an umbrella and this one seems to work well. It seems well made and is comparably priced to other shoot-through umbrellas. Interestingly, they actually included instructions on how to open and close and umbrella...

                              This product works well as a shoot through umbrella. I use it with the lights from the photoflex First Studio Product Kit.

                                I won't go on location without a couple of these umbrellas. The umbrella still remains the most versatile piece of equipment in my light kit. Bounce a flash into it for a nice, round light or move in really close, shoot through and attain a very soft, flat light. So inexpensive that if they get dirty you can throw them away and buy new ones.
