LightPro 70inch Trans / Shoot Through Umbrella
70" Translucent/Shoot Through Umbrella. Classic, white 70" umbrella. This size is perfect for a 1 person head shot, or 3x4 ft product setup.
This is an LightPro 70" White shot through Umbrella. 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.
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.
Suggested use: 1 or 2 person head-and-shoulders shot.
What a photography umbrella does is diffuses a light source without compromising its directionality. This is important and it’s what makes photography umbrellas unique. If you shine a light into a softbox, it may be diffused, but you lose a lot of control over where to aim that light. Not so with an umbrella. Not only does the umbrella soften the light, but you’re still able to aim it exactly where you want it.
For the flexibility it offers, a photography umbrella is a bargain. Unlike expensive and ungainly studio equipment, you won’t mind lugging a photography umbrella around for the afternoon and you’ll mind even less when you see what it can do to your photographs. It’s a tool that belongs in any photographer’s kit.
