Ok so all this week i have been lazy and not wanting to update the blog. But we got in a great toy/tool and i wanted to update you all and show you how cool the results of its use will be. I will warn you that if you use this on a windy day you will have issues.
This week we got in a 6 foot photographic umbrellas from Westcott. The one i chose to play with this week was the one stop shoot through. So i did a photographic “FAIL” and used a SB-800 Speedlite to try to produce a 3/4 body portrait. This umbrella needs more light than that, but i still was some what pleased with the results. Quite possibly it was Geof’s skill full hands that might have saved the image though. That may be open for debate!
Priced at $109 this buggar is a bargain. If i were an Umbrella type of shooter i would pick one up. Check out the pics below, come in and let us show you how big it is. No really it is gigantic.
