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.

Westcott 2005 Reviews
Perfect size and light
Had cheaper/smaller shoot through umbrellas for years that was starting to not stay attached to the frame. While they did the job, especially for headshots, I disliked the light fall off with their size. I knew I wanted to get larger and I wanted better quality, I found that in these wescott umbrellas. It wasn't much more expensive than the cheaper versions of 45" yesterday was the first time I got to use them on a shoot and the light broadcast was perfect and gorgeous.
Reasonable priced well constructed staple of my lighting kit
basic but great
These are great fill umbrellas. I ordered 2 and will use them often. Great for the price.
Used in direct sun
Used this in direct sun to act as a defuser Did it's job
Simple, light weight quality umbrella. Works well. Not sure if this is the same style or brand that Mary Poppins used to fly around with! Whatever, it is a good product at the right price.
These umbrellas are a huge improvement from my old ones. I like the fact that they have the strap to keep them closed when storing them.
Always a good product
I am a repeat buyer of Wescott Umbrellas, they do the job well and hold up. I only replace them after many years when with the age the color gets a bit yellow, but for the price no biggie.
Don't use for heavy rain... LOL!
Seriously... I bought a couple of these and they allow a beautiful soft diffused light to be cast from any light source. Handy and cost effective for any lighting arsenal.
