Westcott Collapsible Umbrellas

For headshots and such I much prefer working with a proper softbox that has a recessed face and 3" lip. But, for super portability, I loves me my Westcott Collapsible Umbrellas. They're only 14.5" long and open up to 43". I can toss a pair of 'em in the top my small messenger bag or in my carry-on size rolling case. In fact, they're so compact that I take 'em any time I've got a flash and stand, even when I don't expect to need 'em. And, the black fabric can be removed to make 'em into white shoot-throughs. Every location shooter needs at least one of these.
