White Versus Silver Umbrellas
Jul 13, 2010

I'm curious about opinions here between these two. I'm leaning more towards a white unit like this:

It seems to me you can get a similar lighting to the Softlighter:

Although it may be a bit more focused than the Softlighter. I know they'll be more light loss than a silver unit, but if someone was going for the likes of a Softlighter, I would imagine you'd lose even more light with one of those than a white umbrella. So this strikes me as a compromise.

I'd be interested in anyone's experiences and opinions with any of these types, thanks.
