Photo Umbrellas (Silver , White, Transparent, Gold)

The easiest way to eliminate harsh shadows and breathe some life into a photo is using a photo umbrella. Doing so, we are able to recreate a soft light.

The reason the umbrella makes the light softer is because it is being spread more. Rather than a burst of light coming from the small flash head, it appears to be coming from the large umbrella. Silver umbrellas are very effective at reflecting light and produces a very "white" neutral tone.

The silver umbrella is great for things that are not shiny. If a warmer tone is desired, the gold photo umbrella would be an excellent choice. The gold umbrella is the choice for portraits; it produces a very warm and pleasing skin tone. However if there is too much gold and too little silver, there are options for half gold, half silver umbrellas. The white umbrella is used when you want to smooth out minor details and produce a more complementary light for your subject.

Transparent umbrellas can be used in many ways to diffuse light. They are semi-transparent so they can be shot thru and used as a diffuser. Use a transparent umbrella in an enclosed location to shoot. You will be amazed at the effects soft light can create as the umbrella reflects some light on the subject, allowing some light to pass through.
