Westcott Optical White Satin Diffusion Umbrella (45")
Key Features

The 45" 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 portraiture, 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.

question

This is sold as a bounce umbrella as well, but is there any reflective backing, or is the whole surface translucent white? If that's the case, won't there be a lot of light spill backwards if you use it as a bounce umbrella?
Asked by: Charles
Charles, Used a s a bounce or shoot through much of the light will spill in the opposite direction. This is not necessarily bad if you are using neutral surfaces nearby to add some additional fill. An umbrella with a backing or a Westcott Halo will both offer more control.
