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.
