Umbrella Guide To Maternity Rights

Shoot-Through vs Reflective Umbrella for Off-Camera Flash / Strobist Photography – CamCrunch
One of the first pieces of kit that you will want to invest in when you start to do off camera flash work is a nice umbrella. An umbrella is a type of modifier that can change the way the light from your flash looks like when it hits your subject. The reason why the umbrella is one of the first modifiers that people buy when they are starting off is that umbrellas are versatile, fairy compact and easy to use. There are two types of umbrellas – shoot-through umbrellas and reflective umbrellas. This short guide will run you through the two basic types of umbrellas that you will run into, what the benefits are of using one over the other and my personal recommendation as to which type of umbrella you should get as your first umbrella.

    EXCELLENT feedback; I was at a lost on what umbrella to order – because I lacked knowledge in the pros/cons of the two. You just helped prevent me from making a mistake and spending money I can't afford to waste. Shoot thru umbrella is all I need for my subjects…at least for now. Congrats on the upcoming graduation – what are your plans after graduation?

    I call STUs the grenades of the modifier world because they throw light everywhere. You therefore, lose some flash power.

    Thank you so much! This was the most helpful video on using umbrellas for photography that I could find.

    There are white reflective umbrellas (and soft silver, a sort of mix of white and silver) that yield pretty much almost as soft a quality of light as a shoot through. Nice, clear explanation of the types of umbrellas, though. Good stuff, bud.
