The Westcott 7' Reflective Umbrella (Silver) is an essential tool for speedlites, strobes, continuous lights, and natural light photographers, whether you're looking for a broad on-the-go modifier or a versatile but cost-effective studio solution. The Westcott 7' Reflective Umbrella (Silver) is perfect if you are looking to maximize the output of your studio light or flash. Bounce your light source into a reflective silver umbrella for bright, edgy highlights or into a reflective white umbrella for a softer, more natural look. Westcott Reflective Umbrella is to soften and expand the output of your studio light or flash. Shoot your light source through a 7' diffusion umbrella for large, glamorous lighting.

First of all, it's a huge, broad light source that wraps light around your subject yielding clean highlights and rich open shadows. But due to the special shape of the umbrella, there's a unique mix of soft enveloping light with the kind of crisp detail you only get from reflectors. This umbrella has a unique design structurally as well. The shaft is double-walled for strength, but it tapers to 7mm to fit Elinchrom and other European flash heads. Instead of bendable metal, the 16 inner ribs are made of durable fiberglass.

This white diffusion is the softest version of the umbrella. Used in standard bounce mode, some of the light escapes through the material, slightly raising the ambient light level and lowering contrast while most of it is directed toward your subject. If you want a harder light, turn the umbrella around, aim the convex side at your subject, and punch your light source through it. In both modes, you can vary the light quality and output by changing the light-to-umbrella distance along the shaft.

You can also use this umbrella as a scrim over your subject to diffuse harsh light sources like the sun in situations like fashion catalog work outdoors or at the beach. Any way you use it, with the Westcott 7' Umbrella less is definitely more.
