This is an Impact 45" white satin umbrella with removable black backing. Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any 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 softbox.

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 size is perfect for a 1 - 2 person half-length portrait, or a 3x4 ft product setup.

"I Like...Not bad...I do a lot of shooting outside and umbrellas get beat up a lot... this is a very nicely constructed umbrella that doesn't break the bank....As a side note so some aren't disappointed be aware that when you take the black cover off the satin umbrella will probably be dirty ( stained from the black umbrella )."

"Very Nice...very good...It's the best of both worlds in that you have a umbrella you can reflect light back to your subject and you have a white umbrella that you can use to shoot through....Replacing the cover is a bit of a challange but do like the option of using as a bounce and shoot through in one unit."

The 43" Optical White Satin Diffusion Umbrella from Westcott is a light modifier that exhibits wide coverage, low contrast and a substantial boost in the ambient light level. Sturdily built with fiberglass rods and a metal shaft, this umbrella is well-suited to group shots, providing fill light and high key effects. It also has the ability to become a shoot-through modifier. Instead of traditionally bouncing your light source inside the umbrella, turn it around and aim the convex side of the umbrella toward your subject. While still diffused, you'll get wide coverage and a snappy look with more contrast.

"My fav....Love It...This model has only the Westcott logo on the umbrella fabric, which is a bonus over some other vendors who include a second logo....The actual umbrella works fine, however the handle/pole is not very stong - it got a bit crushed as I tried to secure it in the bracket."

"Love it...good buy...Not-so great about this particular umbrella is that it's quite a round umbrella and so when using it as a shoot-through, you have light fall off because the top and bottom of the umbrella are further away from your subject than the middle....Love the removable Black Cover; it can be called a semi removable black cover, as well, because it can be used as a flag."

"Love it...Love it....This umbrella is indeed very well made, and the fiber-glass rods are a great idea, but the diffusion material blocked about 3/4 of a stop more light than the Impact Shoot-Through Umbrella does....I generally use it as a shoot through only, but the black cover is a valuable addition that'll give me some options when I need them."

B&H # WEU7S MFR # 4633

If you had to choose a single light shaping tool, you might do well to pick the silver Westcott 7' Silver Umbrella. First of all it's a really big, broad light source that wraps light around your subject yielding clean highlights and rich open shadows. But due to the special shape of the umbrella there's a unique mix of soft enveloping light with the kind of crisp detail you only get from reflectors.

This umbrella has a unique design structurally as well. The shaft is double walled for strength, but it tapers to 7mm to fit Elinchrom and other European flash heads. Insert the shaft into the tilter bracket below the Elinchrom head. Older models or other brands may require separate purchase of an inexpensive umbrella mount. Instead of bendable metal, the 16 inner ribs are made of durable fiberglass and the fixed black backing ensures that all of the light output is on your subject instead of through the umbrella. The silver interior is slightly cooler in color temperature than a white umbrella and tends to focus the light into a soft but narrower field. You can also vary the light-to-umbrella distance along the shaft for a harder or softer light. This silver version is ideal for throwing the light over a long distance. Two of them, for instance could light an entire auditorium or a large graduating class. With the Westcott 7' Silver Umbrella less is definitely more.

"Ok wow....Love it...This large umbrella can double as a diffused light source by adding the slip on diffuser panel(also by Westcott) A great tool when you need a huge reflector quickly indoors or out....I'm not a big fan of umbrellas cause they tend to spread light everywhere, but you can'take beat them for events, as they do save you a lot of time."

"Not bad...thumbs up...No handle, but otherwise the same as a big drug store umbrella (just white) used a pair a bit starting home studio and have been happy....The umbrella has also been a great tool to diffuse the suns bright rays as well as bouncing light off to add the diffused light to fill the dark shadow with just enough light to give me the light ratio that I'm looking to capture."

"nice job...Love it!...I bought this umbrella as a cheaper alternative to a large soft box and it works wonderfully!...Unlike conventional, shoot through large modifiers, this is a shoot into modifier that allows you to slide the light in and out to alter the focus of the light ... unlike an octabox, you cannot add a cloth grid to control spill as well."

Photography discussions are full of desert island scenarios; "if you had to choose a single lens or if you had to choose a single light..." Well if you had to choose a single light shaping tool, you might do well to pick the white diffusion Westcott 7' White Diffusion Umbrella.

First of all it's a really big, broad light source that wraps light around your subject yielding clean highlights and rich open shadows. But due to the special shape of the umbrella there's a unique mix of soft enveloping light with the kind of crisp detail you only get from reflectors. This umbrella has a unique design structurally as well. The shaft is double walled for strength, but it tapers to 7mm to fit Elinchrom and other European flash heads. Instead of bendable metal, the 16 inner ribs are made of durable fiberglass.

This white diffusion is the softest version of the umbrella. Used in standard bounce mode, some of the light escapes through the material, slightly raising the ambient light level and lowering contrast while most of it is directed towards your subject. If you want a harder light, turn the umbrella around and aim the convex side at your subject and punch your light source through it. In both modes you can vary the light quality and output by changing the light-to-umbrella distance along the shaft.

You can also use this umbrella as a scrim over your subject to diffuse harsh light sources like the sun in situations like fashion catalog work outdoors or at the beach. Any way you use it, with the Westcott 7' Umbrella less is definitely more.

"Not Bad...Love it!...This umbrella diffuses the light on my subjects as beautifully as a softbox....I used this umbrella as a single shoot-thru and was delighted with the soft light I got from it."
