This Photogenic 60" Eclipse Umbrella with black backing has an extra silver panel added during construction. The result is the elimination of the reflection of the metal frame of the umbrella in the eyes of your subject, or on highly reflective surfaces, such as chrome or brass.
This size is perfect for portraits of small groups of people, and medium sized product set ups.
This umbrella is designed for use with strobe lighting.
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.
