The Wescott 60in. Optical White Satin with Removable Black Cover Umbrella is a great portable way to really soften or reflect light from a flash or strobe. With the cover in place, easily bounce light. Remove the cover for instant diffusion.Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any tungsten or 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 lightbox. 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. Westcott umbrellas are rated safe for use with hot lights up to 1000 Watts. This size is perfect for a 3 person full length shot, or a 4x8 size still-life setup.
