Probably the most basic light modifier in the photography world--the umbrella. Light reflecting off the umbrella's interior spreads out to cover a wide area. Umbrellas are easy to use, easy to store and easy to transport, and provide you with almost unlimited lighting possibilities. The Creative Light 41" Translucent Umbrella's translucent material means you can shine the light through the umbrella, rather than reflecting off of it, giving you a soft but directional light.
Approved for use with continuous hot lights up to 500 watts
