Savage’s Translucent 65″ Deep Umbrella allows light to travel through the material, offering maximum diffusion and a soft light setup for your subject. This translucent deep umbrella is used for optimal control over light distribution and shadows as either key light or fill light in a variety of lighting situations. It can also be positioned more closely to your subject for portrait work than other umbrellas. Translucent umbrellas are the best type of lighting modifier for beginning flash photographers. They are inexpensive and they have a wide enough lighting pattern that they are easier to position and aim than reflective umbrellas. A drawback to most umbrellas is that they are easily breakable, but Savage photography umbrellas are made with fiberglass ribs for extra durability and include protective nylon sleeve for umbrella storage when not in use.
