General information/guidance regarding flashes and umbrella. Please Guide
11 months ago

I have posted several times in the general forum untill someone told me to post in this section.

I have few queries. 
First is regarding the umbrellas. I have a reflective and a shoot through umbrella and I have to cover a event where i have to take portraits and group shots. I have one flash so which one should I use. I think the shoot through will work fine but still suggest me.

Second is regarding the bounce flash. I recently encountered a black roof and the bounce flash was terrible. I had no umbrella at that time the result was pretty pathetic. 
Third is regarding the power of flash when bouncing the lights. Is there any technique to determine it? It changes with aperture? 
Will really apreciate if u guide me as i am a noob when it come to using flash
