    Comments about Creative Light 25" Translucent Umbrella:

    This is a very nice, small, well made umbrella.
    It looks a bit silly stuck on the front of a big monolight, but the size allows you to get the light in close to smaller subjects and crank the power down but still get great results.

    Comments about Creative Light 25" Translucent Umbrella:

    I'm a makeup artist and my area is small and compact, so with these small umbrellas i'm able to set up two flood lights on each side of my makeup area, i'm using 250w lamps in each tripod and that seems to be enough light and with the smaller umbrellas, they are just so perfect.

      I am just playing around. If I were to try to make a living off of this equipment one would need to purchase much better.. but for play and catching the kids and dog at home... perfect..

          I use this little umbrella for portraits, along with a flash. It softens the light just right. Seems to be made well--I've not used it a lot. Comes with a nice simple case and is well made.

                Comments about Creative Light 25" Translucent Umbrella:

                This umbrella surprised me. The quality is quite good, and it comes with a nice, nylon, draw-string bag--which is much better than the see-through plastic bags most come with. It looks more professional when walking into an assignment with your gear. It's very small, but perfect for a shoot-through umbrella to light one subject (maybe two), as a head and shoulder's portrait with your portable speedlight (IE: Nikon or Canon Flash). I'm going to order a second one.

                    I love these umbrellas. They are the perfect size and seem to be very well made. I needed something to soften the light that would be easy to use and portable and these fit the bill. I use them to light up by white back drop and they also create a bit of rim light. My assistant can easily hold it with a speedlight during weddings for quick creative light! I love them.

                      This umbrella is good for small photo lights. I didn't do the math and thought it would be bigger. It comes nicely packaged with it's own bag.

                            I've used these in the past, and love the quick set-up for soft lighting. No fumbling with ring adapters. The only drawback is not much control. But it does the job.

                              I mainly use for wedding and location photography, inside and outside. It softens my off-camera speedlight very well. I especially like being able to walk through doorways without having to collapsing the umbrella.

                                    Perfect for diffusing light in a simple product photography studio. Just wish I had gotten the next size larger.

                                      I love how small it is, which makes shooting in small areas where you need lighting so much easier. Good quality, and comes with a carrying case to keep it clean.
