Westcott 32" Soft Silver Umbrella

You Pay: $18.45

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.

Soft silver provides a slightly harder light than a white umbrella.
Westcott umbrellas are rated safe up to 1000 Watts from a hot light head.
This size is perfect for a 1 person head shot, or 3x4 ft product setup.

        Comments about Westcott 32" Soft Silver Umbrella:

        I work at a large University media, film and journalism department. I've bought Wescott umbrellas exclusively for the past 3 years instead of the more expensive "name brands". They provide excellent results and have ve held up as well as anything we've used.

            Comments about Westcott 32" Soft Silver Umbrella:

            This was the second umbrella I purchased so it's most likely a user error that I purchased one much smaller than I had anticipated it being. Though it is perfect for use with a flash for headshots or a tight portrait.

            I would most likely buy this umbrella again, but in a larger size.
