This is the redesigned Westcott 45" Soft Silver Umbrella. 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.

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 umbrella provides a harder light than a white umbrella, but a softer light than a standard silver umbrella.
Westcott umbrellas are rated safe for use with lights up to 1000 Watts.
This size is perfect for a one-two person head, or head-to-waist shot, or a 4x6' product setup

            Only used it on a couple weddings but the quality is much better than my entry level one that I was using. Comes with plastic case as well which helps.

              This is a excellent quality light modififier, like all umbrellas spills like crazy, but it's a nice feature. This ones are top quality!

                I was looking for an umbrella with more output than white and less harsh than silver. This one was just that.

                      These are very basic, decent silver umbrellas. My only quibble is that they're gray on the reverse, rather than black.

                      I'm pretty rough on my umbrellas and end up replacing them every couple months, so I wasn't looking for anything fancy.

                        I use this for on-location shoots using a flash. It's incredibly well built! Great reflective light! I'm already considering a second one.

                          Works perfectly. I use a set of these to shoot my speedlights into for studio and location shots. Provides soft shadows on the bounce and just enough to light up the scene when shooting through.
