About the Glow ParaPop 28

The Glow ParaPop 28 brings the ease and quality of our very successful Glow HexaPop line to studio and large portable strobes, featuring flattering, soft and rich color lighting with all the great advantages of the softbox/umbrella blend.
The unique 12-sided shape and parabolic profile 28 inch diameter by 19.5 inch depth, provides a big 105-degree light spread in a light, space saving package. The shadows are slight and beautifully graduated. Colors are saturated and vibrant without the flat pancake 'flashpan' look of direct strobe. Even the highlights and catchlights are more appealing. A full and voluptuous light that caresses your subject.

The lightweight ParaPop opens easily and positively locks to create the perfect reflector diffuser. The ultra efficient parabolic reflector has virtually no fall-off from edge to edge. Glow engineers use UV-A and UV-R diffuser materials and are exceptionally heat resistant. The internal silver reflector fabric rivals all other flexible materials, imitating polished lame. Your flashhead, monolight or speedlight attaches to the speedring assembly and aligns almost allbrands of flashes.

GLOW PARAPOP materials and construction are superior. The critical ingredients in any softbox are the internal reflective fabric, the front diffuser/baffle and the shape of the box. Super strength silvered grid fabric finely line the interior surfaces of the box and add a crisp quality to the output. Light spread is extremely even, pleasing and contrast balanced. Reinforced support rod pocket, seams and Velcro closures make assembly and setup trouble-free. The highlight /shadow ratio is optimized with a concentrated focus of illumination from the special bowl reflector, reverse umbrella design. There is exceptional light efficiency in this design and the flattering results reveal human form with grace and warmth.

The Glow ParaPop is commonly used for Portraits, Studio, Travel and more.

The marriage of the softbox to the umbrella.
Not so unusual today. But this baby was born to bring joy to all the users of flashes, popular in today's dedicated shoe strobes, with harsh, sharp and hard quality, endemic of zoom fresnel panel design.
Softboxes diffuse and spreads light through baffles and reflection, but primarily the light is directly reaching the subject. As the nature of the source light is so widely distributed, it reaches all surfaces with less contrast, filling in details and shadows at the expense of ill defined contours.Less control of light path - divergent.
Umbrellas produce soft focused light from reflected curved surfaces. The sharper quality of directional light beams makes for a more seductive treatment for people and skin tones. Light aimed at the center focal point bounces off the internal surfaces at different angles, but leaves the umbrella as parallel rays.
The product of this marriage of softbox and umbrella: A parabolic umbrella that does not cast divergent or convergent light creating more natural sun-like shadows and fill light. The parabolic reflector shape directs all the light in one controllable direction. By adding the diffuser design more beautiful light caresses the subject.
