Glow Umbrellas are the direct 'fastpath' to light diffusion. Umbrellas are very affordable, a breeze to work with and easy to transport. Eachsize and material has a function. With much attention to detail from fabric to frame ribs, this umbrella sets a new high standard for portable light control for people and subjects at fantastic value.

The Silver Umbrella provides stronger focused lighting, along with soft shadow definition. It is especially suitable for higher light output, greater reach andbringing out details. The Translucent Umbrella provides diffused lighting around a bright central burst. The lighting and effect can be varied by changing the distance from flashhead to umbrella.

Umbrellas are like large to giant sized parabolic reflector. Parabolas are technically 'conic sections'. Take a perfect cone; slice through it down to the base, the edge of the cut is a parabola. This shape is more efficient at feathering light. The important point of the physics of photographically regarding parabolas is they have a focal point. Place light a imed at the focal point and it bounces off the entire umbrella surface at different angles, but when it leaves the umbrella, all the rays are parallel. A great umbrella design, more light reaches the subject. More control. As a comparison, Glow soft boxes were designed to simulate window, light, sky light and north light. Umbrellas can be more compact and quicker to setup than the light bank counterpart.

Another factor in choosing light modifiers: the shape of catch lights in a portrait subject's eyes and the size of the modifier in relation to the size of the subject. The larger and closer the light is to the subject, the softer the results will be as to the transition of the highlight into the shadow. The smaller the size of the unit and the further the distance is from the light to the subject, the harder the effect will be.

The great value of Glow Umbrella, Softboxes and related light modifiers makes your choice simple - both!

This is an awesome umbrella


from Alpharetta, GA

I bought this about a week ago and was delaying the testing of the product. This is and awesome umbrella for the price. The built is excellent. The inside of it have a satin like glimmer and it produce more power if bounced than shoot through. Could have get the umbrella with back backing but I'm not into doing some assembly work on the field. All measurement using sekonic L-358 light meter. -Straight on flash at full power setting 14mm iso 160, 1/160 f/13 -Shoot through at full power setting 14mm iso 160, 1/160 f/9 -Bounced at full power setting 14mm iso 160, 1/160 f/14 -White unknown umbrella with black backing at full power setting 14mm iso 160, 1/160 f/11 If bounced this umbrella produced more power and contrast. See for yourself, I includes a couple of pictures.
