The umbrella remains the fastest and easiest way to soften a studio flash, and for that reason, continues to be used by many photographers. This 105cm size is the most popular size, providing a sweet spot between size and light softening qualities.
The deep parabolic shape of this umbrella provides more intense focused light on the subject than a standard umbrella.
A 16 rib umbrella creates a rounder shape than an 8 rib umbrella, and provides a more flattering catchlight in the eye, and more natural looking reflections in product photos.
The white internal material of this umbrella provides more softness than a silver reflective umbrella. The softer shadows and less specular highlights makes a white reflective umbrella a popular choice for portraits.
