This Photogenic 45" umbrella with black cover has an extra silver panel is added during construction. The result is the elimination of the reflection of the metal frame of the umbrella in the eyes of your subject, or on highly reflective surfaces, such as chrome or brass.

This size is perfect for portraits of 1 or 2 people, and small product set ups.

This umbrella is designed for use with strobe lighting.

Note: Using this umbrella with modeling lights or constant lights brighter than 300 watts for long sessions will result in eventual discoloration or scorching.

Softens and broadens the light output of any strobe or lower wattage constant light.
A silver umbrella will add specular highlights -- a little bit more "snap", than a white umbrella.
May add 1/2 to 1 F-Stop of light output, depending on the light source used.

      Comments about Photogenic Umbrella - "Eclipse" Silver, Black Cover - 45":

      I use these with Speedotron M90 Light heads. They have great output but they are a bit on the flimsy side. Once opened, the umbrellas cannot be wrapped back up to fit into the included cases. Hopefully they will last.

      You know what umbrellas are for. This one does exactly what an umbrella is supposed to do. No shadows from ribs or funny illumination patterns. This is the only type of umbrella I use now.

The silver reflective surface pffers a much greater range of light spread. We love it!
