The 42" white / translucent can be used as either a white reflective umbrella or a translucent shoot through umbrella.
This dual-purpose umbrella features a reflctive white interior surface. It is backed by a removable black fabric with a silver surface, which provides a soft but highly efficient bounced light source.
For close-up lighting, the silver/black backing can be removed, allowing the photographer to get closer to the subject while lighting through the translucent umbrella.
The 8 panel design provides maximum reflectance and an optimum circle pattern of light. The resulting light is perfect for catch lights in the eyes. This size is perfect for portraits of 1 or 2 people.
