Questions? Ask our experts:

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.

Westcott umbrellas are rated safe for use with hot lights up to 1000 Watts.
This size is perfect for a 1-2 person head, or head-to-waist shot, or a 4x6 ft product setup.

      I had ordered amother umbrella from amother company. It didn't have the removable backing. I have one of these already and they are excellent for softening the light shoot-thru or relective.

          This Westcott umbrella is to be used with Fresnel lights (650w & 300W). Will bounce and shoot-thru indoors with family kiddies. Materials are better than current name-brand white translucent and silver bounce. Fiberglass ribs are preferred.
          Cool removable black cover. Too early to know longer term heat issues, but B&H/Mfg approve for this power level.

            I bought a second one of these because I was so satisfied with the first one. I've never had a problem with them and I love the versatility of the removable black cover. Indoors, the cover cuts light spill in dark rooms. With the cover removed it makes a great shoot through diffuser.

              They made a great umbrella greater! The frame has been built with fiberglass ribs which makes it more durable for those windy days! The white satin gives great light diffusion. As you know the bigger the better so by it being 45" the glow that is gives off will more than supply the soft light needed. Also, lets not forget you can remove the black cover and use as a shoot through umbrella as well. A must have.

                    The black cover is fairly easy to put on and remove. Ribs are fiberglass, which is nice.

                            Inexpensive, nice shaft. Shoot through or reflector. I'll be getting another one of these.

                                  This is an excellent reflective umbrella. In retrospect, I would have preferred one that had a removable black cover so that it could be used as a shoot thru also. However I am very happy with the quality of this item.

                                    More durable than my previous umbrella. It dropped while mounted a few times, no major damage that I know of. My previous umbrella pretty much fell apart after 1 drop.

                                      I have used this umbrella three or four times now and it spreads the light great. I am an amateur photographer and this is my first time using an umbrella for off camera flash experience. The pictures I took were great.

                                        This is a great mid size umbrella. I like that you can either bounce the flash off of it or shoot through. If you want to control the light a little more you can remove half of the black fabric and only show through the half that is uncovered. Great quality build at a fair price.
