This size is perfect for portraits of 1 or 2 people, and small product set ups.
This umbrella is designed for use with strobe lighting.
Note: Using this umbrella with modeling lights or constant lights brighter than 300 watts for long sessions will result in eventual discoloration or scorching.
Softens and broadens the light output of any strobe or lower wattage constant light.
A silver umbrella will add specular highlights -- a little bit more "snap", than a white umbrella.
May add 1/2 to 1 F-Stop of light output, depending on the light source used.
