This is a high quality umbrella with a width of 33" (84cm). It is generally mounted on a light stand using an umbrella mount (sold separately). While traditionally associated with photography, umbrellas are equally useful for video work in a controlled lighting environment as they can help to soften harder light sources, creating a more even spread of light.
Different umbrella types can also be combined with different light sources for artistic effect: - Gold reflective umbrellas lend light sources a warmer tone, either deepening the warm tones of a tungsten source or warming up a cooler light source. - Silver umbrellas tend to reflect light in a slightly cooler, more 'neutral' way. - White reflective or 'bounce' umbrellas are the most neutral and produce an even softer light spread - White translucent umbrellas are ideal for video work as light sources can pass straight through them, allowing them to be placed between the light source and subject.
