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
